Drug Charges Against DMX Exaggerated, Says Prison Spokesman
UPDATE: According to prison officials, the Ruff Ryder tested positive for drugs and didn't smuggle any contraband into jail.
DMX will remain in Arizona's Yuma prison longer than anticipated after he was caught with drugs while behind bars.
The gruff rapper, who’s currently serving a yearlong bid for violating his probation, apparently violated prison rules including “drug possession, failing or refusing a drug test, smoking when he wasn’t supposed to, being disrespectful, disruptive and disorderly.”
X has seven disciplinary infractions in total. He was originally supposed to be released from prison tomorrow, but will remain in jail for at least a week or possibly even longer.
UPDATE: According to several sources, the drug charges that extended DMX's incarceration weren't as serious as initially reported. RumorFix spoke with Arizona Department of Corrections' spokesman Barrett Marson, who explained that he didn't smuggle drugs into prison but had drugs in his system.
"He did not smuggle drugs into prison," he said. "He failed a drug test, I don't know what drugs he took, but that's it. He was due to be released today but will now be released on July 19th."
