TMZ is reporting that Earl was picked up in South Carolina by highway patrol for driving under the influence around 3am this morning. X was placed under arrest and taken to Greenville County Detention Center where he was released a short time after. The 42-year-old rapper was also charged with driving without a license, the same thing he was hit with when he was arrested in February.
If you’re the office pool coordinator and need to keep score, that’s two arrests so far. There are five more months left in the year. Good luck!
Update: According to a statement released by DMX’s people, he was not drunk driving.
“Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false. He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles.”
