Ice-T

'Outraged' Over Arrest

... Wants to Sue DMV

8/3/2010 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ice-T is adamant that he will have his "revenge" for his arrest in NYC a few weeks ago, but he's not looking to get back at the cop -- he wants to take out his anger on the DMV ... with a big, fat lawsuit.

As TMZ first reported, Ice was busted on July 20 -- and dude tells us it was all because the cop found "something in the computer called an insurance lapse from 2008."

Ice claims the cop could have just issued a ticket and send him on his way -- but instead, the officer chose to arrest him simply, "Because he could."

Last night, Ice told us the whole thing is pure BS -- and that the computer reading was the result of an error made by either the DMV or his insurance company.

So what's Ice's next move?? Dude tells us, "At the end of the day, after I get this dismissed … I either can sue the DMV or the insurance company … and that’s when I have my revenge."

Maybe if "Ice Bucket" didn't refer to himself with that lame-ass methampheamine-related moniker, he wouldn't be a target of law enforcement. Ice Cube, Ice-Sculpture, Ice-Tray...... dumbasses.

Call that lawyer who advertises on TV late at night. He got Tyrone $2.1 million.

What a jackass. He has no legal cause of action. The insurance company probably told the DMV but the DMV is the government and you can't sue the government for their incompetence. They're immune. Even if DMV corrected the records, these things have a way of coming back to life again with the shoddy systems they use. Welcome to the world the rest of us live in, idiot. I wonder if you'd been POLITE to the cop, or maybe CARRIED your insurance card like YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO, if this would've happened. Really, what an ass.

Perhaps if he wins a law suit he could use that money for acting lessons ?

"He's never broken the law", but he "was in handcuffs" "15 years" ago. He's just full of sh*t!

What an ass!!! He was probably trying to play the celebrity card, being arrogant & snotty and the police officer didn't go for it. Never liked him in Law & Order. I agree with the other posters who said maybe if he was nice to the police.

I wish Judge Judy was presiding this crap of a case, LOL. She would rip him to shreds, especially if he walked in there with his wife wearing those tight fitting clothes with boobs hanging out.....LMAOOOOOOOOO.
