Dmx Arrested In Miami August 14th
Posted on August 15, 2008 by Jamie Slaughter
DMX's ongoing altercations with the law continue, but this time the rapper has been arrested. The arrest took place on Thursday afternoon (14th August), following a warrant being granted for his arrest prompted by his failure to appear in court earlier this week. Reports suggest that he was arrested outside a Wal-Mart store by Miami PD. His lawyer, Charles Kozelka, stated that the rapper had checked himself into a hospital on the day he failed to appear, and had planned to enter a rehabilitation facility shortly afterwards. Those plans didn't follow through due to the warrant and also mentioned that he had been trying to arrange for his defendant to turn himself in at a nearby airport.
The warrant was issued on Tuesday of this week, when he failed to make an appearance for a pre-trial conference on four counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and a single count of marijuana possession. It is only one of the cases which DMX has collected recently.
