Rapper DMX added another mugshot to his vast collection by getting arrested in New York City on Friday night.
DMX, whose birth name is Earl Simmons, was apprehended over unpaid child support shortly before midnight while enroute to Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan for a performance.
Rapper DMX was arrested after admitting to his probation officer that he had regularly used coke over the last nine months. Drug use is a violation of his terms of release from jail.
DMX whose real name is Earl Simmons was locked up for 90 days in jail on drug, theft and animal abuse charges and is now set to do “Hard Time” according to Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio who told Reuters “We would hope that he is finally sent to prison, We’ve arrested him five times already. How many times do you have to violate the law?”
Simmons’ attorney could not be reached for comment.
