DMX Arrested In South Carolina

DMX claims he was set up after paying another visit to the clink following another arrest Tuesday night (August 20) in South Carolina for being caught in a car with weed. Though he was not behind the wheel, the rapper had a warrant for his arrest stemming from a previous case where he drove without a license case,according to TMZ.

“This ain’t no normal traffic stop,” he says in the video obtained by the gossip site. “18 cops, 5 cars, get the fuck outta here man.”

His rep tells VIBE that the rapper, real name Earl Simmons, was driving last night with his two assistants Shawn Durham and Shawn Rhodes. While officers claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard, no drugs were found on X or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to him or the other passengers.

Dark Man X was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina. He is currently under house arrest for a previous conviction, a sentence that could be extended by 30 to 60 days.–Alley Olivier
