DMX Arrested on Dog Cruelty Charges

May 9, 2008


New York MC DMX has been formally indicted on seven misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and four felony drug possession charges, according to the Maricopa County sheriff's office. Here we go…

After a seven-month investigation into the discovery of a dozen malnourished pit bulls and a large weapons cache at DMX's Cave Creek, Arizona, home back in late August, the A search warrant for his home was executed just before 3 a.m. on Friday morning (May 9), during which detectives seized even more weapons and drugs, which ultimately led to the filing of an additional drug possession charge.


According to police, DMX (born Earl Simmons) attempted to barricade himself in his bedroom when police arrived to detain him, but he was eventually talked into coming out and offered no further resistance.

I still don’t understand why rappers continue to live the cliché. I know these dudes don’t really wanna go to jail even though they do rap about it in their songs. You would think having a large stash of drugs, weapons and malnourished pit bulls would come back to bite you in the ass. Michael Vick. T.I. Michael Vick. T.I. Take them to the pound son! Come on X, I know you're smarter than this dog.
