DMX arrested: Here we go again, again and again

5 years ago160 views

Former platinum-selling rapper DMX was arrested, for the third time this year, last night after a traffic stop in Greer, South Carolina yielded three bags of weed.

DMX, real name Earl Simmons, 42, was in the passenger seat of an F350 driven by his friend Anitra Rhodes, 39. According to the Associated Press, the F350 made an illegal U-turn that got the attention of police which then led to the traffic stop. South Carolina police said they noticed a warrant out for DMX stemming from a prior case of driving with no license and let X know that he needed to go to jail.

One of the police officers reported seeing " a bag of green plant material I knew to be marijuana" in the passenger side armrest, where DMX happened to be sitting. X said the weed wasn't his and then told police that he "had breathing trouble."

"At this point, Mr. Simmons became very aggressive with his words and was making multiple idle threats," the police report said. "The smell of alcohol coming from his person became very strong."
X was placed under arrest for the warrant and also given a citation for simple possession of marijuana. Simmons was booked into the Greer jail, but released on bail hours later, according to a police spokesman.

Anitra Rhodes, DMX's assistant, was charged with improper lane change and simple possession of marijuana after three bags of weed were found under the driver's seat.

On July 26, Greenville police pulled DMX over because he was spotted driving a 1978 Plymouth station wagon erratically on the road. X was given a field sobriety test and failed. He was charged with DUI, driving without a license and driving without a seat belt.
