DMX Arrested For DUI…Again (Update)


DMX – real name Earl Simmons – was arrested last night in South Carolina for allegedly driving under the influence. His second, alleged DUI offense of the year.

According to TMZ, South Carolina Highway patrol picked up DMX around 3 AM ET and transported him to Greenville County Detention Center where he was quickly processed and released around 4 AM.

X has long, storied history of over a dozen run-ins with the law with a particular penchant for driving-related crimes including multiple DUIs. Simmons was last arrested in February for driving without a license in South Carolina.

UPDATE: XXL received a statement from Domenick Nati of Nati Celebrity Services who says he was not arrested for a DUI. “Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false. He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles.”
