Rapper DMX was arrested in northwestern South Carolina for driving without a license early Wednesday morning (February 13). Authorities say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested at 1 am after an officer recognized him at a gas station.
Simmons already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching Simmons leave a gas station, get into a car and drive away. Simmons was released after paying a fine. He recently finished a stint in prison on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.
