Ice-T, whose real name is Tracey Marrow, was ticketed for theft of services after driving through an E-ZPass lane in a McLaren sports car he recently had gotten from California.

He was also ticketed for not having a license plate or registration for the exotic car.

Ice-T said he forgot his electronic toll transponder and has seven of them for his other vehicles, The New York Post reported.

Ice-T, who portrays a New York Police Department detective, Sgt. Odafin Tutuola, on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," was on his way to film episodes of the long-running show.

"I love how people think just because I ACT like a cop on SVU I get special treatment from real cops," he later tweeted.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
