News: DMX in trouble again: This time, itís over traffic violations.
A fresh new round of charges have been added to the telephone book-sized rap sheet of rapper DMX.
The artist, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was pulled over by police in White Plains, New York after he was spotted driving his 2001 Chevy Suburban at "unreasonable speeds" and making unsafe lane changes, Deputy Commissioner Daniel Jackson told the Associated Press.
Once he was stopped, Simmons was cited for not wearing a seat belt and not carrying a driver's license, Jackson said. The 35-year-old was given a ticket and told to appear in traffic court on June 16.
DMX was arrested last month in London after allegedly refusing to put on a seat belt and becoming abusive on a flight from New York. Last year, the rapper spent 70 days behind bars for violating his parole following a 2004 incident in which he posed as an undercover federal agent and crashed his SUV through a security gate at Kennedy International Airport.
A week after he pleaded guilty in that incident, state police accused him of driving over 100 mph on Interstate 684 in North Castle, in Westchester County.
