DMX DUI Arrest Video Released

UPDATE: After DMX's publicist claimed arrest reports were false, a smoking gun video confirms the rapper was busted behind the wheel of a souped up late '70s Plymouth station wagon.

DMX has reportedly been arrested for driving under the influence in South Carolina. X reportedly failed a sobriety test after being stopped by state troopers yesterday (July 25). 

Bob Beris of the South Carolina Highway Patrol told Hip-Hop Wired that DMX was arrested at approximately 8:50 pm. Beris said that X was identified as a "possible DUI driver" in a 1978 Plymouth station wagon and was stopped for driving erratically. DMX failed a field sobriety test after being pulled over on US 29, according to Beris.  

X was reportedly charged with a DUI at Greenville County Detention Center. He was also reportedly charged with not having a driver's license and not wearing a seat belt. 

TMZ reported that X was arrested this morning (July 26) at 3 am. It is unclear if the arrests are regarding the same incident or if the TMZ or Hip-Hop Wired reports are accurate.

TMZ also posted X's latest mugshot, which can be seen below.

A representative for DMX has said that the allegations are untrue and that DMX was not arrested for driving under the influence. 

"Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false," the representative said in a statement. "He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles."  

DMX has been in legal trouble before. In 2008, he was arrested for attempting to purchase cocaine and marijuana. He was also arrested that same year for animal cruelty and drug charges. Also in 2008, X was arrested by federal agents in Miami, Florida. In 2010, it was reported that DMX was battling addiction after several arrests. He was also stopped that year for driving violation hours after being released from prison. In February of this year, X was arrested for driving without a license

(July 26)

UPDATE: Despite claims for DMX's publicist that the arrest reports were not true, TMZ.com has acquired video footage of the onetime Yonkers, New York superstar being stopped and held by police.

"I don't have a license with me, sir. I don't have a license with me. I have my ID," said the former Def Jam Records multi-platinum rapper in the video.

The video is below:

    The man has problems, I know 3 or 4 dudes like him, minus the celebrity status. He's slipping , falling and can't get up from his recent troubles. Dmx will always be the man, musically. He killed a Rudolph beat ffs!

    all i i see is hypocrisy and ignorant comments. like you dont want to drive. like you never had problems with cops. everything is blown, let this this guy live. wait til its your turn

    TMZ are fucking vultures. Monetizing all the time from peoples misfortunes, the lowest of the low in terms of "journalism".

  • Anonymous

    Who provided X a car? And why is he driving himself around? Shouldn't he have someone with him to drive so he can avoid all this bullshit? Or maybe the nigga was out getting drugs and had to be alone or something.

    • Zasman

      after making platinum records and movies like cradle to the grave, you wouldn't expect him to drive that!

  • Anonymous

    Some people are beyond help. It's unfortunate, but that's what it is with X. I love the niggas music, but he's got too many demons to reform his life.

    this is sooooo funny. this is "real ni66a"...LoL

  • blitzlegga

    At first I was thinkin you cant really blame X for swervin since its hard as fuck to see the lines of the road when its raining. But its hard to defend him nodding off in the cops car. Getting arrested will wake any nigga up no matter how tired you are, unless of course you high as a kite! BTW, I think its strange that South Carolina police put niggaz in the front seat of the cops car instead of the back seat. aint never seen that before...

      They do that in Cali too. They got their partner in the back. Your handcuffed, ain't much you can do in the front unless you shakin' like all crazy. Then they'll turn the camera off and Rodney King your ass.

  • Art Brooks

    X needs a wake up call. I don't what will do it though (jail sure doesn't work).

  • Wolfman

    No one should be surprised anymore. Fact is, you rap about a certain life and this is what becomes of it later -- you're a full blown drug addict, dead or locked. It's like the movie Scarface. Everybody thinks Tony Montana is dope, and just kind of forgets he gets his shit split at the end. This is a rapper 20 years after being hard on the streets.

  • Spokesman For The DMV

    Your license was revoked last year Earl. Stop driving!

    Hahah damn he looks like he fell off even harder than I remember in that mug shot hahaha

    You YMCMB haters are fucking idiots. Because Im an accountant for Cash Money Records, I spend a lot of time with Birdman. What some of you may not know is Michael Jackson was planning on signing to YMCMB at the time of his death. He had even changed his stage name to Mic Jackin. He was planning on releasing 2 Major albums of hard hitting Trap shit, one a collaborative album with Lil Wayne titled Trap Kids. Since Michaels demise Cash Money records have actually teamed up with NASA and are creating a Global headquarters in Space and on the Moon. The reason for this is to create a new genre of hiphop called Zero Gravity Rap. Lil Wayne was hospitalized because during his first zero gravity rap training session he rapped so hard he created a Blackhole that nearly engulfed him. The universe was not ready for his talent so it tried to take him, luckily all it got was his chain and a couple of Big Mac vouchers. All you haters are gonna be sorry soon YMCMB will be so big it will have its own gravitational pull meaning you will be drawn into it no matter what you do.

    Damn, as an accountant for YMCMB it is sad to see one of my all-time favorites go through this. Infact I really think Wayne is garbage and my all-time favorites include DMX, Nas, Big and Jay-Z. I wish the best for his family.

    update: According to a statement released by DMXs people, he was not drunk driving. Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false. He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles.

    He was also charged with having cigarette butts all over his back seat, a CD player that skipped, and a back tire that had a leaf stuck to it.
