Dmx In Trouble Again

Hip-hop star DMX has been arrested for allegedly speeding on a highway in upstate New York - just a week after pleading guilty to driving through an airport parking gate while on drugs.

The 33-year-old rapper, real name EARL SIMMONS, was pulled over on Wednesday evening (15DEC04) on Interstate 684 after driving 167 kilometres (104 miles) per hour in a 105 kilometres (65 miles) per hour zone, say police.

Because his license had been suspended after the airport incident, DMX was arrested on charges of third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation. State police say he was also charged with speeding and driving an unregistered vehicle.

The RUFF RYDERS star was released on $350 (GBP184) bail and ordered to appear in court on 18 January (05).

In June (04), DMX was charged with smashing into a gate with his vehicle at New York's John F Kennedy Airport after telling a parking lot attendant he was a federal agent. He later admitted to being on valium at the time.

DMX pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a conditional discharge, meaning further violations within a year could land him in jail. He was also fined and ordered to forfeit his sports utility vehicle.

Prosecutors are investigating whether Wednesday's speeding arrest violated the terms of Simmons' discharge.
