Rapper DMX was arrested last Thursday for a felony charge of violating probation. He was arrested for not following the terms of his probation, including checking in with his probation officer. DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has a long history with breaking the law in Maricopa County.
The rapper has been arrested six times now in Maricopa County — two of which are probation violation arrests — for 2009 felony convictions for cruelty to animals, theft and two drug counts.
DMX was on parole after an assault conviction.
