Rapper to Cops: I'm Bulletproof, Sucka!

4/23/2008 8:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TreachRapper Treach from Naughty By Nature was given a ticket for driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over for driving the wrong way down a one-way street ... all the while wearing a bulletproof vest.

Treach was busted yesterday in Newark, NJ. after police were called to the area because of a report of shots fired. Treach was pulled over in "the immediate area of the shooting incident" but Newark PD tells TMZ they have no suspect (or even a victim) and that Treach is only "a potential witness at this time."

TMZ fun fact -- it is not a crime to wear a bulletproof vest in New Jersey, unless it is worn during illegal activity. The more you know ...

HA, yes, because most people wear a bulletproof vest when they're not involved in illegal activity.

Driving the wrong way down a one-way street with a suspended license is illegal activity.

You guys must not know of Newark. It is a dangerous place for everyone. Most people that live in newark are thugs. You do not dare to go there after dark.

When the Government says it's a crime for a private citizen to wear a bullet proof vest, then the Government is against us "we the people" and to have it both ways to say the least... --it's only a crime when a private citizen is doing something "allegedly" illegal is absurd...

We should all be concerned, a bullet proof vest in these times is very smart, should not be considered illegal...!

Newark is a cesspool. I have zero need to wear a bullet resistant vest, not much crime near me.
