    Rapper DMX was driving in a vehicle with his two assistants Shawn Durham and Shawn Rhodes when he was arrested on August 20. So it was X and the Shawns or X and Shawn Squared.

    It was reported that weed was found in the ride and that X smelled like alcohol. It was also said that he was wanted on a previous open warrant and that he had an asthma attack at the scene.

    Now, DMX has issued a statement that was provided to us by someone in his camp on Wednesday, August 21.

    It is as follows:

    "DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night. Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X. No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11AM EST and is back at his home in South Carolina."

    There you have it – DMX's side of the story.
