UPDATE: Rapper DMX Apprehended By FBI In Florida
In an update to today’s earlier report, rapper DMX has been apprehended and arrested by the FBI in Florida today.
The rapper, who, as previously reported, was wanted by the law for skipping court and had a $5,000 bounty reward on his head, was apprehended this afternoon by the FBI on an island off Miami Beach, according to TMZ.
DMX’s court troubles stem from charges of drugs and animal-cruelty which led to the rapper being charged with a series of charges including 11 counts of drug possession and drug-paraphernalia possession, allegedly giving false information at a hospital and seven counts of animal cruelty.
DMX is currently being held in the Miami-Dade County jail and faces a bond of $120,000 which must be paid in full, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court spokesperson.
The rapper whose real name is Earl Simmons, will be turning 38 December 18th.
