If only will.i.am had a real tricked-out DeLorean from "Back to the Future," he could go back in time and get his registration straightened out.

The rapper's customized DeLorean was impounded Thursday night after the LAPD noticed him driving without license plates, unnamed sources told TMZ. When the cops took a look at his registration, it turns out that he also had a registration problem. Oops.

Police told him that he needed to get out of the car and have a friend pick him up. will.i.am graciously obeyed their orders. Fortunately, will.i.am doesn't need a time machine to get the DeLorean back: he just needs to do some paperwork.
