According to TMZ, the famous rapper was arrested in South Carolina last night after police pulled him over for making an illegal U-turn. The cops found weed in DMX’s car, but the “Party Up (Up in Here)” singer is claiming that he was set up.
“This ain’t no normal traffic stop,” he screamed on the tape. “18 cops, 5 cars, get the f— outta here man.”
Something tells us that’s not the way to address a cop when you’ve been arrested, but considering the boys in blue also noticed a warrant out for DMX from a previous case in which he drove without a license, we’d say he has bigger problems.
The rapper was taken to jail in Greer County, S.C. and should face a judge sometime today. TMZ reports that he’ll likely face 15 days behind bars, but will only have to serve 10 if he behaves.
The site also reports that DMX suffered an asthma attack during the arrest, but is fine now.
