NEW YORK — New York City police say they have arrested rapper-actor Ice-T on accusations of driving with a suspended license.

Police say the entertainer was driving a 2009 Cadillac near West 40th Street and 11th Avenue on Tuesday when officers stopped him for not wearing a seat belt. They said they ran a check and discovered his license was suspended.

The NYPD said he would be given a ticket and released.

Ice-T denied wrongdoing via Twitter. He says he has a valid New Jersey license and calls the police's allegations against him a "lie."

The actor has played Detective Fin Tutuola on the TV drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" since 2000.
