DMX*Through his publicist, Dominick Nati, DMX has responded about his arrest Tuesday night in South Carolina:

“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.” ~ Domenick Nati

DMX Arrested Again … in South Carolina (Watch Video of Bust)

dmx mugshot (07-13)1*Good grief, this is getting old. DMX has been busted  … again.

It happened in last night in South Carolina.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ … DMX, 42, smelled like he was drunk and in possession of WEED at the time of the arrest.

Cops say X was a passenger in an F350 truck that made an illegal lane change. When they stopped the ride, cops say they found a bag of weed sitting on the arm rest of the passenger door, where X was sitting.

Cops say one of the officers recognized DMX during the arrest and knew there was an active warrant for his arrest.

The officers proceeded to search the car … and found 3 more bags of weed under the driver’s floor board. … so they cited the driver for possession of weed.

According to the report, DMX became “very aggressive with this words and was making multiple idle threats.”

X was ultimately cited for weed and hauled to a nearby jail to deal with the warrant.

Last year, DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was charged in Spartanburg County with suspicion of driving without a license.

The rapper/actor was arrested near Phoenix in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving 102 mph. That followed a prison stint on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.
