DMX can’t stop getting arrested in South Carolina …
For the third time in four months the rapper – whose real name is Earl Simmons – has been arrested in the Palmetto Upstate. In July it was for driving without a license in Greenville. In August it was for marijuana possession in Greer.
DMX’s latest Palmetto State arrest was for “driving on a suspended license, driving while uninsured, and driving an unlicensed vehicle,” according to the website TMZ
He was busted at the Greenville-Spartanburg International airport by cops who were reportedly familiar with his lengthy rap sheet.
DMX has been previously convicted on numerous drug, weapons and driving charges – as well as animal cruelty and aggravated assault charges. In one infamous incident in 2005, he was arrested for cocaine possession, criminal impersonation, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, menacing, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – all while impersonating a federal agent and attempting to carjack a vehicle.
It’s been a tough year for the multi-platinum artist, who filed for bankruptcy in April prior to his latest string of arrests.
UPDATE: DMX’s representative has issued a statement on his latest arrest.
