Rapper DMX again arrested in South Carolina

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:25 a.m. HST, Jul 26, 2013

GREER, S.C. » Rapper DMX has been arrested in South Carolina and charged with driving under the influence.

Greenville County jail officials say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested early today. He was also charged with not having a driver's license.

Simmons was arrested last year in nearby Spartanburg County for suspicion of driving without a license. In that case, he was released after paying a fine.

Jail records show Simmons has been released. It wasn't clear if he has an attorney.

Simmons was arrested in a Phoenix suburb in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving at 102 mph. He had recently finished a stint in prison on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.

Not surprised by this at all. DMX is know for his hatred against gays and other races. The sad part is that he actually has a strong following.
