DMX attacks prison officer

Rapper is now getting in trouble behind bars

DMX was rebooked in prison earlier this week after he reportedly threw a tray of food at a corrections officer.

The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is incarcerated on animals, theft and drug charges. He apparently flung the tray at the officer after being accused of stealing food.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that this is the second time in less than a month that Simmons has had an altercation with authorities at the prison.

Last month, Simmons refused to report for a work assignment. He also did not report for his medication the same day and later became “agitated” because he did not receive it, shouting profanities at a supervisor, reports .

He is serving 90 days in jail, with 18 months probation. This could change as a result of his behaviour in prison.
