More information has been reported on DMX‘s recent arrest, as to why he did not make it to the Master of Ceremony show at Radio City Hall, where he was scheduled to perform.

Long story short, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told PIX 11 that DMX was actually taken into custody for “several issues outstanding.” Sheesh.

Reasons for Arrest:

1) Earl Simmons was issued an arrest warrant by the Erie County Family Court for $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, the spokesman said.

2) Another arrest warrant was issued to Simmons, this time by the city of White Plains for bail jumping. The city of Yonkers is accusing the veteran rapper of being an aggravated unlicensed motor vehicle operator; and a criminal complaint out of Newark, N.J., names DMX as a suspect in an April 5th robbery at a gas station in that city, the sheriff’s office said.

He was arrested at 10:30 p.m. in Manhattan by sheriff’s office deputies.

Things aren’t looking good for DMX at this point. Not sure how he will work his way out of this one.

More information to come as story develops.




Earl Simmons aka DMX just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. It looks like the veteran rapper has been arrested again, right in New York City.

Pix 11 reported, that the 44-year-old rapper and Yonkers native has been arrested in NYC [today] Friday night, according to the New York County Sheriff’s Office.

What prompted the arrest is in question as the details are limited at the moment.

DMX was slated to perform at 8 p.m. at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan for the Masters of Ceremony concert featuring Shabba Ranks, The LOX, Rakim, Ma$e, Pete Rock, & CL Smooth, Brand Nubian and Das EFX.

Unfortunately, DMX didn’t hit the stage.

More details to follow.
