Rapper DMX was arrested in South Carolina last night after cops claims they found weed and discovered an outstanding warrant after a routine traffic stop. Find out more deets inside.....
Last night, rapper DMX and a friend were pulled over in South Carolina after the driver (not DMX) "allegedly" made an illegal U-turn. During the stop, cops say they found marijuana and noticed that X had an outstanding warrant from driving without a license. So you know what happened next....that hauled his ass to jail.
But before he was put in the cop car, the rapper (who's starring in the new Chris Rock project) put on a full-fledged performance while ranting about being "setup." As a female bystander filmed the arrest, the rapper can be heard screaming, "This ain't no normal traffic stop. 18 cops, 5 cars, get the f**k outta here man. It was legal ... they got nothing."
During one part of the rant, you can hear him say, "I'm sweatin' like a motherf**ker, yo." In fact, cops believe he had an asthma attack so they had paramedics come treat him.
According to TMZ, X was taken to jail in Greer County, SC and will see a judge this morning. He is expected to be sentenced to 15 days behind bars, but may only serve 10.
X was arrested in South Carolina just last month for driving without a license, and allegedly driving under the influence (which his rep denies).
