DMX Pulled Over By Cops Hours After Prison Release
Following DMX’s release from prison, where he had served 18 days of a 90-day sentence for reckless driving, police flagged the former Ruff Ryder down for a minor traffic violation. X, born Earl Simmons, was on his way home from a recording studio and couldn’t provide proper identification as he apparently wasn’t in possession of a valid driver’s license. He avoided arrest when the cops instead ticketed and ordered to appear in court at a later date.
According to TMZ, his passanger took over the steering wheel and drove DMX home following the incident. X can’t catch a break. Previously, the hip-hop star also completed a four-month prison sentence this past July in Arizona for a parole violation.
