DMX Arrives Late To Court, Pleads Not Guilty To Drug and Animal Abuse Charges

Here we go again. DMX showed up late for a court hearing today in his drug and animal cruelty cases, but a judge overlooked the lapse as the rapper plead not guilty to charges, according to the Associated Press.Last week, the former Ruff Ryders star was arrested twice and indicted on a number of counts. He was charged with 11 counts overall, among them felony marijuana and paraphernalia possession and seven counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty.The animal cruelty charges stem from an August incident when police raided the Phoenix, Arizona home of DMX and found neglected pit bulls. The dogs were dehydrated and underfed. Three of the animals were found buried in his backyard.The rapper is due back in court July 2.-Jayson Rodriguez
