DMX arrested in Phoenix suburb for speeding, reckless driving



tbd-dmx082611.jpgIt's been almost an entire month since DMX was last released from jail, so he as bound to have a run-in with the law. And wouldn't you know it, he was arrested Wednesday night for speeding. well, if you call 102 on U.S. 60 through a Phoenix suburb. We're guessing that's almost twice the legal limit. At least he wasn't drunk or high.

The erstwhile Earl Simmons was booked on criminal speed, driving on a suspended and revoked license and reckless driving for racing through the town of Mesa, the AP says. He was released on bond early Thursday.

Simmons was released from an Arizona prison last month for violating his probation after he failed to submit to drug testing and drove on a suspended license. He's been arrested more than a half-dozen times on offenses ranging from weapon possession, using a false identity, theft, and animal cruelty, in addition to various drug problems and yes, speeding. Time to stay home with OnDemand, DMX.
