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!

Will is a good guy. Meet at Barack Obama dinner at Terry's house, and this is an example of LA PD making muchado about nothing... In any other town, they would have issued a citation for no tags, and given the driver a chance to clear up with no reprocussion.

ED is correct. It is a IAMAUTO. But it is a Deloren underneath so I guess if it half car and half kit car.

In either case, it is the same as him...pure crap.

...and then the LAPD kissed his ass after they learning that he is a celerity, telling TMZ a Hollyweird gossip outlet that he was very cooperative throughout the entire process...

This is ridiculous. If he was an un licensed illegal immigrant it would be against LAPD policy to impound his car.

For all of the stupid comments about the officer holding his baton, or pulling over a black guy.. when you pull someone over without tags you have no clue who is in that car, and whether or not they have a violent record. Also how did he know he was black man, it is not like he is driving your typical pimp mobile.

Why does TMZ always have that Gay-ass sounding guy on these vids? He's always screaming like somebody's rammin' his a$$, and when all the crew sits around in that room, they sound like a bunch of silly f"ggot-ass teenagers, talking about celebs. Can't they find REAL jobs. Little gossiping bitc___.
