Rapper DMX Arrested... Again

Earl Simmons, also known as rapper DMX, has found himself in trouble with the law again, this time with a DUI charge in South Carolina, CNN reports.

Troopers in Greenville reportedly pulled over a 1978 Plymouth station wagon on Thursday night and gave DMX a field sobriety test, which the agency said he failed.

According to state highway patrol, the 42-year-old rapper was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, driving without a license, and without a seat belt.

Simmons' publicist, Domenick Nati, denied the DUI arrest saying, "He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles."

DMX's criminal past includes probation violation, illegal drug possession and animal cruelty.
