DMX Arrested & Released; His Publicist Issues Statement


Ruff Ryders

On Monday night, TMZ reported DMX was arrested at a Spartanburg, South Carolina airport for driving with a suspended license, driving while uninsured, and driving an unlicensed vehicle. Now, the rapper’s publicist, Domenick Nati, has confirmed that DMX has been released from jail.

“DMX’s celebrity status has made him a target in South Carolina and even the smallest misstep is sent to the tabloids by police,” Nati said in statement to ABC News Radio. “DMX was released at 9:46pm Eastern Monday night. He was arrested on minor traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail.”

Nati adds, “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.”

In addition, X’s camp also justified the Yonkers rapper, tweeting that X was just “taking a chance to catch the flight in time, so he was doing the right thing in the wrong way.”

The arrest follows the trouble rapper’s sting of recent arrests, including being handcuffed in August for allegedly possessing weed, as well as an alleged DUI in July.
