DMX arrested for violating probation

Rapper regularly used illegal drugs, say authorities

DMX was arrested on Tuesday (March 9) for regularly using illegal drugs throughout the last nine months – violating his probation rules, it has been revealed.

The rapper, real name Earl Simmons, was on probation for throwing a tray at a detention officer in jail in Phoenix last year. He was serving time for drug and theft offences and animal abuse.

Now it has been revealed that Simmons was not complying with the terms of his probation by admitting to taking cocaine, reports Billboard. He is facing five counts of violating probation.


Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said, “We would hope that he is finally sent to prison. We’ve arrested him five times already. How many times do you have to violate the law?”
