Why should a celebrity be treated any differently then us non celebs ~ seriously. Everyone knows you need to keep your registration in your glove compartment along with proof of insurance... DA!
I wouldn't believe someone who has a bone to pick and being arrested when you are a celeb is a big shiny bone :)

He should be arrested for ripping off Rick James's "Super Freak." "U Can't Touch This" sounds exactly like it.

@spcwt, His 'version' of Rick James' 1981 classic debuted over 23 years ago. Did you just discover this?

HA! I'm impressed that he's a Rick James fan -- which is, of course, a misinterpretation of his post that he will be pleased to correct, shortly.
According to an unimpeachable source, James did sue Hammer for copyright infringement, and is now listed as a co-songwriter. So justice has been served, at least in that instance.

How this li'l fracas will resolve is harder to say, except that everybody has their preconceptions about the facts.
