DMX charged with driving under the influence

Rapper Earl Simmons, or more popularly known as “DMX,” was held for driving under the influence on the evening of July 25, a statement from the South Carolina Highway Patrol said.

DMX, who is also an actor, was pulled over by authorities at around 11 p.m. on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was seen driving erratically. After failing a field sobriety test, the rapper was then brought to Greenville Detention Center and was charged with DUI, driving without a license, and not wearing a seat belt.

A statement from Simmons’ publicist a day after the incident confirmed the arrest but said that DMX had been immediately released, contradicting the police statement.
