DMX
DMX was arrested over the weekend at London’s Heathrow Airport after allegedly verbally abusing cabin crew on a flight into England (May 13).

The rapper – real name Earl Simmons – refused to buckle up his seatbelt for landing, police have said.

He then is said to have started speaking abusively to aircraft crew once the plane had landed.

In a statement, a Scotland Yard official said: “Heathrow Police were called at 12.05pm with reports of a passenger causing a disturbance... a thirty-five year old man was arrested on suspicion of being verbally abusive to cabin crew.”

DMX was later released with the Scotland Yard spokesman adding: “He accepted a caution for an offence under the air navigation order."
