New York Knicks star J.R. Smith was arrested in South Beach last night ... after cops discovered the 26-year-old was a wanted man.

According to reports, Smith was pulled over on a routine traffic stop ... when the officers noticed an active warrant out for Smith's arrest stemming from his failure to address a ticket for driving without a valid license.

Smith was booked into Miami-Dade County jail shortly before midnight. He was released a short time later on bond.

Calls to J.R.'s agent have not been returned.

I'm not getting why his tattoo's have the most to do with anything from what most of these comments are saying, people have dumb tattoos all the time and unless the police have X-Ray vision to see through cars he more than likely was pulled over for driving a expensive car.

I could be wrong on my guest but I'm sure what red flagged him for the police was him giving them an invalid drivers license and they obviously had to run his information, easy arrest.

Tattoos? I have heard everything now.
