The Trenton man who calls himself Emperor El Bey is not making diplomatic immunity claims to authorities after his latest arrest.

The emperor, known to authorities as William McRae, has been bickering with authorities who say he can't keep horses in his backyard. He says the laws don't apply to him because his home is an embassy of something called the Abannaki Aboriginal Nation.

"Emperor El Bey" was arrested Wednesday while appearing in municipal court in Bordentown.

He is charged with driving without a license and other offenses. Authorities also say he also owes three women more than $50,000 in child support.

For now, he's in the Mercer County Jail.
