DMX arrested over unpaid child support & robbery

As DMX was prepping to perform at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the cops came through and scooped him up without warning. The rapper was arrested for $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, bail jumping and robbery. 


"A spokesman for the New York City Sheriff’s Department tells WPIX-TV  the 44-year-old rapper was taken into custody Friday for several “issues outstanding.”
He said those included $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey. No charges have been filed in the Newark case.
The rapper’s real name is Earl Simmons. He had been scheduled to perform at the Master of Ceremony concert at Radio City.
A management company that has represented DMX did not immediately return an email seeking comment from The Associated Press. "
