BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Police say David “Ceaser” Emanuel, owner of the famed Black Ink tattoo parlor in Harlem, New York, has been arrested on suspicion of multiple traffic violations, including carrying a fake driver’s license.
TMZ reports that, last Friday, officers witnessed Emanuel run a red light and fail to yield to pedestrians while driving in Brooklyn.
When they pulled him over and asked for his license, he produced one that showed the name “Emanuel Thomas” and listed his date of birth as June of 1971 … eight years off. He was actually born in 1979.
Emanuel is also alleged to have failed to produce a valid insurance card, leading to his arrest and citation for misdemeanor false impersonation and other violations.
Emanuel and his tattoo parlor are the subject of the hit VH1 reality TV series “Black Ink Crew,” which began in 2013 and has continued for seven seasons and spawned two spin-offs, one based in Chicago and another in Compton.
