Rapper Maino has been arrested after New York City police officers caught him driving on a suspended licence.

The Hi Hater hitmaker's vehicle was pulled over on 25 September (13) after police caught him driving his 2008 Bentley without a front licence plate.

During the stop, cops also discovered that he was driving on a suspended licence and should not have been on the roads.

Maino was taken in to custody but has since been released, and is due to face a court in November (13).

It isn't the rapper's first driving problem - in 2010, he was pulled over by police after ignoring directions from traffic cops while driving around a busy area in the Big Apple.
