DMX Arrested For Driving Without License, Cancels Television Appearance

DMX arrested for driving without a license, car tag or automobile insurance, cancels appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show."

DMX was arrested in South Carolina yesterday (November 4) on charges of driving with a suspended license, not having a car tag and not having automobile insurance, according to cnn.com

A Spartanburg County Detention Center police officer who was reportedly familiar with X due to recent arrests in South Carolina, stopped the rapper for questioning as he drove towards the airport, according to Rosylin Weston, an airport spokesperson who spoke with CNN affiliate WSPA. 

DMX has been arrested several times this year. In February, DMX was arrested for driving without a license. In July, X was arrested for driving under the influence after he was seen operating a vehicle "erratically," according to South Carolina Highway Patrol. He was also found to be driving without a license and without a seat belt. In August, he was arrested for marijuana possession for drugs that were found in his vehicle after he was stopped by a police officer. X reportedly "became very aggressive with his words and was making multiple idle threats" when a police officer questioned him about the marijuana. Throughout his life, X has faced several criminal charges including probation violation, illegal drug possession and animal cruelty, as per cnn.com. 

DMX's publicist released a statement about the arrest.

"He was arrested on minor traffic charges and spent only three hours in jail," X's representative Domenick Nati said, according to cnn.com. "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.'"

UPDATE: DMX has canceled his appearance on Wendy Williams' talk show, which was slated to take place today (November 6).

"Due to recent media scrutiny, DMX will not be appearing on 'The Wendy Williams Show' this week," X's publicist said in a statement, as per allhiphop.com. "The team apologizes to his fans who were anticipating his performance, but we are holding off on interviews and focusing on making music and organizing a world tour."

    I love DMX,but come on man really?Just don't fuckin drive,get a ride.i know it sucks it's an inconvence but so is being arrested thrown in jail and having to go to court....You can only feel bad for someone for so long until there stupidity just keep showing....I understand no one can tell him how to live his life,but if he enjoys paying fines doing time being broke doing drugs drinking having family problems being portrayed as a pity case on Dr Phil rather than making a comeback being loved by his fans getting paid living a clean healthy life with his family and friends ,than you reap what you so...........This is coming from a true fan not a hater,I am pulling for you but get it together already!Thats enough....Cops can't fuck with you if your out of there eye and they can't see you,and if your in the studio and doing shows,being constructive and witnesses can attest to that.Best of luck X I am pulling for you.You fan.
