Rapper DMX arrested for violating probation

Posted on

According to Reuters, rapper DMX was arrested in Arizona today for violating probation by using illegal drugs. DMX (neé Earl Simmons) is serving probation for throwing a food tray at a detention officer while serving 90 days on drug, theft, and animal abuse charges in a Phoenix jail last year. Today, he confessed to using cocaine in violation of that probation agreement, and was put in custody on five violation charges.

His attorney was unavailable for comment.
