Rapper DMX arrested for not having license in SC

GREER, S.C. (AP) — Rapper DMX has been arrested in northwestern South Carolina for driving without a license.

Authorities say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday after an officer saw him at a gas station in Greer. Simmons already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching Simmons leave a gas station, get into a car and drive away.

Simmons was released after paying a fine. It isn't clear if he has an attorney.

Simmons was arrested in a Phoenix suburb in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving at 102 mph. He had recently finished a stint in prison on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.

So, he was pulled over for being black at 1AM in SC.  ...Yeah, that sounds about right.

 

Even though the racist cops here will never learn to be anything else but racist cops ...DMZ should still get his sh!t together.

 

GET YOUR DAMN LICENSE, FOOL! Or ...a Chauffer or something. Jeezus!
