Singer Tank Arrested After Refusing To Show License To Police

R&B crooner Tank has been taken into custody after being stopped by police for using his cell phone while driving.

The TGT singer, whose real name is Durrell Babbs, was driving around in the Van Nuys side of Los Angeles, California when officers allegedly saw him talking on his cell phone, according to TMZ.  Since using a cell phone while operating a vehicle is prohibited in California, the officers pulled Tank over.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Tank refused to cooperate with police when he was asked for his driver’s license.  He declined to hand them his license, so he was arrested for failure to obey an officer.

In photos obtained by TMZ, Tank is seen in hand cuffs being placed inside a police car.  He was dressed very casually with sweat pants and a t-shirt.

Tank is believed to still be in custody.

Tank is not the only entertainer to be caught using his phone while behind the wheel in California.  In February, actress Eva Mendes was pulled over for talking on her cell while cruising around L.A.  “Wonder Years” star Fred Savage was busted, last May in L.A., for the same offense, and pop singer Sarah Harding was stopped last April in London.  For a few minutes, Harding refused to pull over, and, like Tank, she was taken into custody afterwards.

The California hands-free law went into effect in 2008, reported San Jose Mercury News.  According to the law, California drivers will receive a ticket if caught either using a cell phone or texting without a hands-free method while operating a vehicle.

In February, lawmakers concluded that drivers can use their phones behind the wheel if they are using it for its map or GPS system.  Even with this ruling, a driver can still “be cited for anything an officer considers a distraction,” according to the law’s spokesman, Sean Wilkenfeld.
