Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies say they removed 12 distressed pit bulls this morning from the Cave Creek home of rapper turned actor DMX. Earl Simmons, aka DMX, was not at home when the raid occurred. Sources tell 12 News deputies also found a large cache of weapons.
When it rains, it pours. DMX better get his story together and get his lawyer.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick agreed to plead guilty to a federal conspiracy charge, admitting he and three other men ran a dogfighting operation from his home in Virginia.
Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law, said in a telephone interview that reports suggested Vick might serve between one and two years in jail, though Judge Henry Hudson has discretion to impose up to the maximum five-year sentence. Vick is expected to formally enter a guilty plea before Hudson on Aug. 27.
Vick has been suspended from the NFL indefinitely.
