DMX was back in a Miami jail Tuesday afternoon after federal authorities arrested him on a bench warrant at the Palm Island home of producer Scott Storch.
The rapper, born Earl Simmons, was picked up for missing a Dec. 5 court date in Phoenix. A woman in Georgia tipped off the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office to his whereabouts after hearing there was a $5,000 reward for any info leading to his capture, reported TMZ.com.
X was being held at the Miami-Dade County jail and is due to return to Phoenix, where bond is set at $120,000. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty in Arizona.
Attorney Charles Kozelka says the 37-year-old entertainer was unable to attend the Phoenix court date because he’s been in and out of rehab in Florida for several weeks.
