DMX Cited for Traffic Violations in Yonkers
Rapper DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was pulled over in Yonkers, NY yesterday (October 9) after officers noticed that his 2001 Chevy Suburban was not inspected. Officers stopped the rapper at about 1 p.m. while he was traveling north on the Saw Mill River Parkway, Westchester’s Journal News reports. In addition to a summons for lacking an up-to-date inspection, he was also cited for a suspended registration and driving without a license. According to Westchester County Police officer Lt. Henry Cetina, Simmons was “fully cooperative.” The SUV was impounded and he is expected in court on December 18. This incident marks yet another chapter in a long string of driving related run-ins with the law for Simmons. On June 2, he was stopped and issued several violations for speeding and unsafe lane changes in White Plains, New York. Days later, he was cited for driving on the shoulder of the Hutchinson Parkway in Westchester. On June 30 he spent the night in jail after failing to appear in a White Plains courtroom despite having been granted two postponements.
