Repeat Offender … DMX Arrested Again!
DMX was arrested on Monday night, surprise, surprise, for driving without a license. According to the Spartanburg County Detention Center website, Earl Simmons, the rapper’s legal name spent nearly three hours in jail on charges of driving with a suspended license and having no car tag or insurance.
Turns out, the 42-year-old has been in so much trouble with the law, law enforcement in South Carolina know exactly who he is. On Monday, a police officer spotted the rapper pulling up to the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, and that’s when he stopped X for questioning. When the rapper was unable to show a valid license, he was taken into custody.
HipHollywood reached out to X’s rep who told us that the 42-year-old was released at 9:46pm EST Monday night. We are told that the “Party Up” rapper was arrested on “minor traffic charges” and that his short arrest will not “affect any of his upcoming concerts and he is planning on performing with Swizz Beatz on Wednesday’s Wendy Williams Show.”
X’s arrest is just one of several in the past few months. Back in August, the rapper was taken into custody for marijuana possession in Greer, South Carolina. In July, Simmons was arrested on charges for driving under the influence and driving without a license Greenville, South Carolina.
Will this be a wake up call for the rapper?
