Rapper Earl Simmons better known as DMX, is looking at increasing his rap sheet. DMX faces seven misdemeanor animal cruelty charges and four felony drug possession charges, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Joe Arpio is about as much fun as the bubonic plague on a good day. One can only assume that Mr Simmons will be spending some quality time in Sheriff Joe’s Tent City. Actually I think DMX would look good in pink stripes.

According to reputable sources, our less than reputable rapper was busted for animal cruelty and drugs. Hmm, that sounds like the Michael Vick story. And indeed the dogs involved were Pit Bulls.

Apparently our mad rapper did not go quietly and was arrested after barricading himself in his house.

This was DMX’s second brush with the law in 3 days, last Wednesday he was arrested on charges of racing on a highway. Speed cameras on a Phoenix-area freeway caught him ‘bookin it’ at 114 mph. ‘Bookin it’ resulted in being booked on charges of racing on a highway, reckless driving, two counts of endangerment and three counts of criminal speed and driving on a suspended license. I guess this is all in a days work for a rapper.

Fridays arrest seems to have its roots in an incident last August involving some animal cruelty. Although why the authorities would wait 10 months to act is beyond me.
