DMX Denies Violating Probation, Ordered to Remain in Jail

DMX appeared in Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix earlier this morning (November 24) to address his arrest on probation violation charges from last week.

In court the troubled MC denied any wrongdoing, which included allegations that he used cocaine and OxyContin, according to the Associated Press. He was ordered to remain behind bars without bond as he awaits trial. Calls to his rep for comment have yet to be answered as of press time.

As previously reported, X was brought into custody last Thursday after he reportedly failed to submit to a drug test to his probation officer and drove on a suspended license. He is currently on probation for an assault conviction.

If convicted the Yonkers rapper could face up to eight months in jail.

DMX’s next hearing is set for December 9. —Elan Mancini

    i dont believe he was using drugs. x admitted that he was in a rehab program, they let him out to do a show, and he drank alcohol. these people just have it out for x and want to throw everything they have at him.

    What’s up with AZ and no alcohol on probation? X and Weezy have the same limits. I hope these cats make it through these tough times, they’re both talented….
