NEW YORK (CBS/AP) New York City police say they have arrested rapper-actor Ice-T on accusations of driving with a suspended license.

Police say the 52-year-old entertainer was driving a 2009 Cadillac near West 40th St. and 11th Ave. on Tuesday when officers stopped him for not wearing a seat belt. They said they ran a check and discovered his license was suspended.

The NYPD said he would be given a ticket and released.

Ice-T, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, denied wrongdoing via Twitter. He says he has a valid New Jersey license and calls the allegations made against him by law enforcement officials a "lie."

The rapper-actor has played Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola on the NBC police drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" since 2000.
