Will.i.Am
has temporarily lost his customized "Back to the Future" car -- a tricked out DeLorean -- after cops pulled him over in L.A. this week ... and IMPOUNDED the vehicle ... law enforcement tells TMZ.

According to sources, cops pulled the rapper over Thursday night for having no license plates. When they looked at his documents, we're told cops also discovered a registration problem ... so they kicked Will.I.Am out of the car and impounded the custom vehicle.

Will was cited for the registration SNAFU as well as the no-plate thing -- but we're told he was very cooperative throughout the entire process. Will then had a friend pick him up from the scene.

The DeLorean will be held until Will.I.Am gets his paperwork in order.

Great Scott!

Not surprised Will.i.am was cooperative, guy's got a good calm attitude in general, and makes some tight music with thoughtful lyrics.

As Richard Belzer observes, those California cops are tough! "Pull over! Pull Over! Your left speaker's out!"

It is pretty stupid not to have plates. It isn't that hard to get a car registered. I'm guessing the problem is that if the car is too custom you need to jump through a few more hoops first.
At least Will seems to be a decent guy. Compared to Drake, Chris Brown, Amanda Bynes, and Lindsay this is nothing (though the cop was right in doing what he did).

Somethings never change. Check out the cop holding his baton ready to hit someone.

L.A.P.D. doing their best to impound your sh*t so they can charge you a tow fee, impound fee, holding fee's, release fee's, honor of being impounded by LAPD fee's and whatever other fee's they can make up on the spot!

How disrespectful is this bum? America is on the brink of financial collapse and this dumb rich fool doesn't want to pay for his car registration. The Tax Department should pay him a visit and go through him like diarrhea goes through me when l listen to his God awful computer generated junk crap pathetic embarassing run of the mill music...Crack Head

Delorean...Isn't that the guy the LA FBI office set up on that bogus cocaine deal back in the 79-80? Dude took it to court and beat all counts...Seems jury did not like the case not even. Even LA FBI wanted some paparazzi on that case and it backfired.

That's not a DeLorean, that's one of his "IAMAUTO" cars.
