Rapper DMX arrested in SC

GREER, S.C. — Rapper DMX has been arrested in South Carolina for driving without a license.

 

 

Authorities say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday after an officer saw him at a gas station in Greer. Simmons already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching Simmons leave a gas station, get into a car and drive away.

 

Simmons was released after paying a fine. It isn’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.
