Rapper DMX was just released from prison in July and already he is back in trouble. He was arrested in Arizona on Wednesday after being caught excessively speeding. He was clocked driving over 102 mph on a major freeway, according to state police.
State troopers sprung into action, pulling him over. DMX - born Earl Simmons- was behind the wheel of a Chrysler 300 when he was caught. The speed limit on the road is 65 mph, so he was driving well over the posted limit.
He was found to have a revoked license. He was cited and released early on Thursday on suspicion of criminal speeding, driving on a suspended and revoked license and reckless driving. The vehicle was then turned over to the passenger, who was the registered owner.
DMX, 40, has been arrested six times in the past three years.
He just got out of prison on July 19 after serving seven months for violating probation, after admitting to breaking the rules by drinking alcohol at a concert. He received six citations while in prison, as well.
Among the offenses he committed? Failing to submit to a drug test.
Will DMX ever straighten up and fly right?
