Party Lines Slideshow: Ice-T, Eva Mendes, Will Ferrell, and More at The Other Guys World Premiere

At last week's world premiere of Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell's buddy-cop spoof The Other Guys at the Ziegfeld Theater, Ice-T had his recent arrest on his mind. Take it away, Ice-T: "It’s not even worth talking. I got pulled over ... [the cop] could have given me a ticket, but he decided to put me in handcuffs. Before I even got in there it already hit TMZ and it became national news. It was something called an insurance lapse, from 2008, but I’m innocent. So I’ll go to court and I’ll prove my innocence just like we do on Law & Order. But I think when people said 'Ice-T is arrested,' so many people were like, 'Yes, yes! They got him, finally.' It was nothing. [At the police station] they were rolling their eyes, looking at the guy, like, 'You brought Ice in for what? A ticket? Are you serious?' They were like, 'If we’re going to get him, we want to bust him good.' But, you know, I ain’t been in handcuffs for years, so I had to get my final wake-up call and remember what it felt like."
