Po Earl… he can’t catch a break! The embattled rapper is back in a Phoenix, Arizona jail after vowing never to set foot in that town again!
DMX (real name Earl Simmons) was was arrested in Arizona Tuesday (March 9th) for violating terms of his probation. According to Arizona News, DPS’s gang enforcement unit arrested Simmons at his probation officer’s office, for allegedly being in possession of crack cocaine.
He appeared in front of a judge and was booked on five counts of probation violation and exploded in court accusing the Phoenix sheriff department of violating his civil rights. I must have missed that law that gives us the right to bear rocks…but I digress.
The judge in the case isn’t giving him a break for as you know, DMX has been arrested five times in Arizona in the past on charges ranging from drugs to animal cruelty and theft.
He is being held without bond and reportedly undergoing addiction treatment. Word on the street is that he’s considering a stint on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab.
I dunno how much good that will do. I mean… I love Dr. Drew and all but DMX needs some serious therapy and not any of that TV stuff. It would be fun to watch though…
