DMX Arrested Again in South Carolina, Charged With Marijuana Possession


DMX Arrested Again in South Carolina, Charged With Marijuana Possession


An illegal U-turn by the rapper's truck and a warrant for driving under suspension prompted the arrest on Tuesday, August 20.

Following his arrest late last month in South Carolina under suspicions of driving under the influence and driving without a license, hip-hop artist and actor DMX was again apprehended by police late Tuesday, August 20 in his home state. The 42-year-old rapper's outstanding warrant stemming from this recent case was one of the grounds for the police to take him into custody, his third time to make a visit to jail this year.

The arrest was made after the truck that he was riding was stopped by authorities in the city of Greer for making an illegal U-turn and the police realized that he had a warrant out for driving under suspension. They also found marijuana in the vehicle, for which he and the truck's driver Anita Shalawn Rhodes were both charged with simple possession.

"Though 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," DMX's rep stated, which made the MC "very aggressive with his words and was making multiple idle threats."

The MC was then brought to Greer County jail, but was shortly released the following morning and is now back at his home in South Carolina where he is reportedly under house arrest. This most recent incident is his third driving-related arrest this year, committed after previous multiple offenses that ranged from speeding to animal cruelty.
