Rapper Earl "DMX" Simmons was reportedly stopped hours after being released from jail yesterday, weeks prior to his 90-day sentence coming to an end.
Pulled over for a traffic violation, X will once again have to face a judge in court.
DMX was stopped by police in L.A. yesterday, just hours after being released from jail. The rapper was driving down Sunset Blvd. in a rented Mercedes-Benz after leaving the recording studio. DMX's rep says the stop was for a "minor traffic violation", but police then found out he didn't have a valid driver's license. He was issued a citation and will have to appear in court. A passenger took the wheel to drive DMX home. (411 Mania)
X was released from a Los Angeles jail sometime yesterday.
DMX has just been released from an L.A. jail ... after serving 18 days of a 90-day sentence stemming from a reckless driving conviction in 2002. Before X began his sentence, the rapper said he was dedicated to taking "steps toward regaining everything I've lost. FYI -- Lindsay Lohan also had a 90-day sentence ... but she got out in 14 days. (TMZ)
Details on X's decision to turn himself over to authorities landed online last month.
DMX turned himself in to the Los Angeles Metropolitan Courthouse on Monday afternoon (July 26) at about 2:30 p.m. to begin serving a 90-day sentence stemming from a 2002 reckless driving charge, according to his attorney. X was arrested for DUI way back in '02, but reached a plea deal for a lesser charge of reckless driving, the rapper's lawyer, Aja Southern, told MTV News. Southern alleged that a series of events, including X having to serve time in anArizona jail on an unrelated charge, had caused her client to postpone his L.A. sentence. (MTV)
Writing on Twitter Friday (August 13) morning, X tweeted his post-jail thoughts.
"PRAY 4 ME AND I'LL PRAY 4 U, TO NEW BEGINNINGS AND WALKING DOWN THE RIGHTEOUS PATH, ONE LOVE X," he wrote. (DMX's Twitter)
