Last night, during a traffic stop prompted by an illegal U-Turn from the car he was in, police arrested DMX for possession of marijuana.

According to TMZ, Greer County, South Carolina police claim they smelled marijuana on the Yonkers rapper, found marijuana on the arm rest and acquired three more bags of marijuana under the car’s floor board following a search. He would subsequently be jailed in Greer County and was released Wednesday under house arrest stemming from an arrest warrant issued for previous charges. TMZ also says X suffered a mild asthma attack during the series of events but was fine after paramedics responded to the scene.

DMX's publicity team issued a statement to refuting claims that allege DMX was never shown the bags of marijuana retrieved from the vehicle.

DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night. Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X. No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina.
