Earlier this week, DMX was arrested in South Carolina on charges of driving with a suspended license with no car insurance, and not having a license plate on his vehicle.
As reported by CNN, according to the Spartanburg County Detention Center website, DMX spent three hours in jail late Monday night before posting bond on the above mentioned charges of driving with a suspended license, having no car tag or insurance.
An airport spokeswoman, Rosylin Weston, told CNN affiliate WSPA that a police officer, who was familiar with DMX and his multiple recent arrests, stopped him for questioning as the rapper drove up to the front of the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, and when X could not produce a valid drivers license, he was placed under arrest.
Monday nights arrest was DMX’s third arrest in South Carolina since July 26th when he was charged with driving under the influence, driving without a license and driving without a seat belt. The other arrest came in August when X was cited for marijuana possession then taken into custody for an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court for a previous charge.
DMX’s publicist, Domenick Nati, gave a statement on the rapper’s latest run in with the law, and said the recent arrest will not derail his efforts to revive his career:
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.
Although X’s publicist said the arrest wouldn’t effect his appearance on today’s (11.6.13) episode of the Wendy Williams Show, he was wrong as the rapper cancelled his performance.
Today, following his previous statement, X’s publicist issued another statement announcing the rapper would not be performing on the talk show:
Due to recent media scrutiny, DMX will not be appearing on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ this week. The team apologizes to his fans who were anticipating his performance, but we are holding off on interviews and focusing on making music and organizing a world tour.
