DMX Arrested (Again)
DMX has been arrested *sigh* again.
We've lost track of the rapper's countless arrests this year but the figure was hovering around the several dozen mark when we stopped keeping score. Since then things have gone from really bad to bottom of the barrel.
Okay, this week's episode goes a little something like this: DMX (aka 37 year old Earl Simmons) was due in court in Phoenix Arizona to face a whole lot of charges, the more serious ones included drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty. When the rapper failed to show an arrest warrant was issued and a $5000 reward was offered for information about his whereabouts.
A couple of days later police got a call saying the rapper was at producer Scott Storch's house in Florida and so they went down there and arrested him. Now, here's the amusing bit: Storch has been experiencing massive financial difficulties in the last year and the rumours currently circulating are that Storch himself called the cops and then pocketed the $5000.
For what it's worth, DMX's lawyers are saying he wasn't able to attend court because he has been in and out of various drug rehab facilities - a story that no one is buying. Either way, he's been shipped back to Phoenix to face the charges and is looking at $120,000 bond.
