A $5,000 reward has been issued by Arizona police authorities for information leading to the capture and arrest of troubled rap star DMX.
According to Phoenix’s KPHO news, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department is currently on the search for rapper Earl Simmons aka DMX, after a warrant was issued for his arrest last Friday (December 5).
“This guy is a major annoyance to the criminal justice system,” Sheriff Joe Arpaio told KPHO. “But we will track him down and he will face a different kind of music in a court of law.”
As previously reported by SOHH, X missed a court appearance last week for drug, identity theft and animal cruelty charges, which led a Maricopa County judge to move forward with an arrest warrant.
X’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, reportedly told TMZ his client was residing in an undisclosed rehab facility but was supposed to show the Arizona judge paperwork to justify his absence. The rapper is also being forced to post a $120,000 cash bond or possibly face jail time.
