Dmx - Dmx To Sue Over Arrest
Rapper Dmx is threatening to sue cops for harassment after he was arrested for speeding earlier this week (beg22Aug11).
The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, was pulled over in Arizona on Wednesday (24Aug11) and accused of travelling at more than 100 miles (160 kilometres)-per-hour in a 65 miles (104 kilometres)-per-hour zone.
He is adamant he was driving at a maximum of 90 miles (144 kilometres)-per-hour - and now he's vowed to launch legal action against officers for harassment.
Simmons tells Tmz.com, "I was going 85 miles-per-hour... I know for a fact I didn't go more than 90... I'm used to driving fast, I'm a New Yorker... but I constantly look at the speedometer when I'm driving... I need to make sure I don't drive too fast.
"I plan on suing... and I plan on suing for harassment... I'm in discussions with multiple lawyers who are not afraid to go against the system in helping me clear my name because I have been harassed."
