Dmx Arrested Again After Florida Drugs Bust

Troubled rapper DMX has been arrested in Arizona for violating the terms of his bond - the third time he's been taken into police custody in just 10 days.
The star - real name Earl Simmons - was stopped by cops as he disembarked a flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday (02Jul08) morning.
He was arrested for violating his bail terms from a previous incident on 23 June (08) - by being caught on the wrong side of the law again last Friday (26Jun08), when he allegedly attempted to buy drugs from an undercover officer. According to reports, he was trying to purchase $45 (GBP22.50) of cocaine and marijuana at the time of the arrest.
DMX was detained at Miami-Dade County Jail before being released to fly back to his home in Arizona.
But he was picked up by police upon his arrival at an Arizona airport, according to website TMZ.com.
This latest arrest is just one of many legal woes the hip-hop star has faced so far this year (08). In January (08), he was arrested for allegedly speeding down a Phoenix, Arizona freeway, clocking up a reported 114 miles per hour (183 kilometres per hour). And in May (08), he was charged with suspected drug possession and animal cruelty following raids on his Arizona home.
