Rapper DMX again arrested in S.C.

GREENVILLE (AP) — Rapper DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina.


A spokeswoman for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says airport police arrested the 42-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just after 5 p.m. Monday.


Rosylin Weston says officers familiar with Simmons’ previous arrests for driving with a suspended license arrested him after seeing him behind the wheel of a vehicle.


Jail records show Simmons was booked on charges of driving under suspension, having an uninsured vehicle and not having a licensed vehicle.


Court records list no attorney for him, and Simmons’ spokesman didn’t immediately return a message.


This is Simmons’ fourth arrest in South Carolina this year. His other charges this year include several charges of driving under the influence and simple possession of marijuana.
