Rapper DMX arrested in S.C. on charge of driving without a license
Rapper DMX was arrested in South Carolina early Wednesday on a charge of driving without a license. The rapper recently completed a stint behind bars after his probation was revoked for the same reason and because he refused to submit to a drug test.
The 42-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested after police said they saw him leaving a gas station in Greer, in northwestern South Carolina, around 1 a.m., the Associated Press reported. He was taken to jail, then released after paying a fine.
Authorities said DMX had been issued tickets in other South Carolina cities, accused of driving without a license, and that a state DMV search indicated he had only a state ID card on him, according to local TV station Fox 10.
