Tyga Hauled Away by Police Outside Hollywood Nightclub

The rapper - real name Micheal Ray Stevenson - was flagged down by LAPD officer for allegedly driving with no license plates.

LAPD tells us that around 1:30 am in Hollywood, the rapper was stopped for having paper plates on his brand new four wheel drive Mercedes G-Wagon.

In dramatic footage caught by photographers, the rapper is seen talking to the police before he is asked to step out of the auto, a Mercedes G-Series which sells for upwards of £90,000, and is then walked over to the cop vehicle. The paparazzi asked the rapper why he was being arrested, to which he responded: "Because I have paper plates".

But he was actually stopped because he ran a stop sign and he didn't have proper license plates on his new vehicle - which he flaunted on Instagram earlier that day, E! When buying a auto, the dealer must supply temporary plates until permanent ones are bought.

This isn't the first time Tyga has been in trouble with the law.

He was reportedly taken down to the local police station to be investigated for driving under the influence (DUI) but he was released after about 90 minutes after it had been established he wasn't.

Pictures of the star filming his new music video emerged just hours before, showing him surrounded by scantily-clad beauties following his split from Kylie.

One day prior to the incident, the 27-year-old posted a photo on Instagram showing off the new whip. They're broken up, but will be bail him out - will they get back together after this blow?
