Late last night, TMZ reported that the often-incarcerated rapper DMX had gotten in trouble with the law again, this time in South Carolina, after getting pulled over in a routine traffic violation. X went on to get arrested and brought to county jail, and was expected to have a hearing with a judge today.
In a timely response to the news, Domenick Nati, DMX’s PR and Talent Agent, reached out to XXL with a statement on the arrest. Check it out below.
“DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night. Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X. No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina.”
