Drugs Found In DMX's Possession At Time Of Last Week's Arrest

UPDATE: Oxycontin and cocaine were allegedly led to DMX's probation violation last week. The rapper is expected in court tomorrow. After expressing hopes of “staying under the radar” before a show in Scottsdale, Arizona last week, DMX found himself arrested in Maricopa County for the sixth time. Fox affiliate, KSAX, reports that officers arrested DMX—real name Earl Simmons—at his home after he failed to check in with his probation officer. “I know if I was to get caught driving without a license or something, it would be on the news instantly and I would be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” X said last week. “I say I’ve been given a lot of unfair treatment. But I’m not gonna let that dictate where I go or what I do. If I like a place, I’m gonna stay there.”
DMX had his court appearance late Thursday night, since X was already on probation for aggravated assault, it’s unclear how the latest arrest will impact him.

UPDATE: The New York Daily News has confirmed that DMX's probation violation last week was due to possession of Oxycontin without prescription and alleged cocaine possession. The Yonkers, New York veteran emcee had long battled addiction. He will be back in court tomorrow as a result of the violation.
