*It will probably come as no surprise to you that DMX has been arrested … again. For the cops it was like a three for one deal. We’ll explain.
The rapper was pulled over by cops at the airport in Spartanburg, SC and nailed for driving on a suspended license, driving while uninsured, and driving an unlicensed vehicle, reports TMZ.
A rep for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says officers noticed DMX, a/k/a/ Earl Simmons, as soon as he pulled up to the terminal — and were apparently well versed on his track record.
X is familiar with the suspended license charge — he’s been slapped with that one multiple times. His most recent busts were for allegedly possessing weed (in Aug.) … and an alleged DUI (in July).
Here’s an UPDATE on DMX from his spokesperson, Domenick Nati (Nati Celebrity Services):
“DMX was released at 9:46pm Eastern Monday night. He was arrested on minor traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail. This short arrest will not affect any of his upcoming concerts and he is planning on performing with Swizz Beatz on Wednesday’s Wendy Williams Show.”
*He’s an NBA Hall of Fame center and he was busted at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
We’re talking about the legendary Bill Russell. He was arrested after Transportation Security Administration officials found a loaded gun in his luggage.
It happened earlier this week as he attempted to go through security. Airport spokesman Perry Cooper confirmed Friday night that Russell was cited for having a weapon in a prohibited area. Russell’s gun was confiscated and he was released.
The gun was a .38-caliber pistol and was loaded with six rounds, according to a TSA spokesman. He was turned over to Port of Seattle police and there were no disruptions at the airport.
The 79-year-old Russell has lived in the Seattle area for quite a few years. He was an 11-time NBA champion with the Boston Celtics and coached the Seattle SuperSonics from 1973-77.
Bus Driver, John Moody, 64, of Pinellas County, Florida, didn’t intervene as teenagers beat another boy mercilessly on his bus, July 9, 2013.
There have been so many cases of violence on school busses that it would be understandable if more and more students find alternate transportation to school.
A Florida school bus driver, John Moody, 64, in Pinellas County, was witness to a horrific beating of one student by three older, bigger boys on his bus from the dropout detention school where he picks up students, according to CNN.
Moody was interviewed and said that he too feared the boys and was in shock as they beat the boy, what he thought could be, to death.
*The craziest offenses are getting the young and not-so-innocent arrested lately.
University of Florida’s star linebacker, Antonio Morrison, 19, was arrested on Sunday morning for approaching the window of a police squad car in front of a night club and barking at the K-9 inside.
Police were at the night club responding to a non-related incident when Morrison thought he’d bark at the dog because he barked at him, according to the Daily Mail. If this is sounding really dumb, wait, it gets worse.
Shawn Custis, 42, allegedly broke in a woman’s home, June 21, and viciously beat her in front of her 3-year-old, but was captured in an apartment house in Manhattan, Friday, June 28, 2013.
*The horrific home invasion we reported last week where a man broke into a home in Millburn, New Jersey and mercilessly beat a woman in front of her 3-year old daughter has been solved and the culprit brought to justice!
Shawn Custis, 42, is allegedly, the animal that attacked the woman whose identity has been withheld by law enforcement. Police caught Custis Friday, June 28, in an apartment building in Inwood, Manhattan, without incident.
He is being held in an undisclosed location and hopefully being treated the same way he treated his victim.
*We’ve been expecting this.
When news first broke about him being object of a warrant, Chad Johnson was supposedly in Cali … in Pasadena.
But according to TMZ, he was popped this morning in South Florida … after a Broward County judge determined the ex-NFL star violated his probation stemming from his 2012 domestic violence bust.
The warrant had actually been issued for Johnson’s arrest earlier this month after he failed to report to his probation officer on 2 occasions. He made matters worse because he failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class.
The former NFLer’s probation stemmed from his now infamous (head-butting) domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last year.
TMZ says Johnson has already appeared in court over his alleged probation violation — and earlier this morning, the judge determined Chad WAS in violation and ordered him to be arrested and jailed.
