DMX May Escape Jail Time Thanks to Dr. Drew

Earlier today (March 16) DMX was sentenced to six months in jail in an Arizona courtroom for violating his probation. Yet he may not have to serve any more time behind bars.

TMZ reports that although X admitted to five separate probation violations—all drug related incidents—Celebrity Rehab’s Dr. Drew Pinksy wrote a letter to the judge asking if he could treat the troubled rapper at his Pasadena Recovery Center.

As of press time the verdict is uncertain.

The Yonkers-bred MC was arrested and held without bond last Tuesday after admitting to his probation officer that he had been abusing cocaine since being released from jail nine months ago. He was on probation for throwing a food tray at an officer while locked up on drug, theft and animal abuse charges last year.
