DMX Arrested Again For Traffic Violation, Publicist Says Comeback Still on Track

DMX, real name Earl Simmons, can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble, especially in his home state of South Carolina.

The “Get At Me Dog” rapper was arrested and jailed on Monday night on charges of driving with a suspended license, having no car tag or insurance, reports CNN. He was released on bail after spending three (3) hours in the slammer.

The arresting officer was familiar with X’s arrest record when he saw the MC pull up to the front of the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. After question X, he arrested him for the traffic violations.

A rep for the rapper told CNN, “He was arrested on minor traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail. This 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.”

The arrest is the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for X in South Carolina, which also includes a citation for marijuana possession in Greer, South Carolina, in August, and he was also arrested for an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court for a previous charge.
