    I remember reading DMX's full criminal/arrest history back on d12world and being blown away... anybody have a running list at this point? Gotta think he hasn't slowed down.

    UPDATE...here's my compilation:
    • 1999
      • Officers of the Fort Lee Police Department executed a search of his home; DMX promptly surrendered himself on weapons possession charges.
      • During a blockbuster 'Hard Knock Life' tour stop in Denver, a warrant for his arrest was issued in connection with a stabbing and shooting of a man that attended one of the concerts, of which Simmons was later cleared
      • Faced an animal cruelty charge in Teaneck, New Jersey, that was dismissed after the performer agreed to accept responsibility and record public service announcements for an animal rights group.
      • Another incident occurred in May 1999, when he was accused of assaulting a Yonkers man who had allegedly harassed his wife and stabbed her in the neck (the charges were once again dropped).
      • More serious charges were brought that summer (1999) when Earl's uncle/manager was accidentally shot in the neck at a New Jersey hotel. Police later raided Earl's home and filed animal cruelty, weapons, and drug possession charges against the rapper and his wife; he eventually plea-bargained down to fines, probation, and community service.
      • On July 10, 1999, he was arrested for using obscene language during a concert in Trinidad.
      • On October 11, 1999, he was arrested for assaulting a police officer while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The officer need 13 stitches in his head. He was sentenced to 2 months in prison.
    • 2000
      • Served a 15-day jail sentence for possession of marijuana.
      • In March 2000, he was arrested for aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, speeding, failure to signal, driving without a license, failure to notify the DMV of an address change, and possession of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, and Percocet while driving on New York State Route 33 in Cheektowaga, New York, following a concert in Buffalo, New York.
      • He was then scheduled to appear in Cheektowaga Town Court on March 21, 2000, but failed to appear, resulting in a warrant being issued for his arrest. He later turned himself in, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of driving without a license and was sentenced to 15 days in jail and fined $400.
      • Also March 2000: he was charged with marijuana possession, after turning himself in, when authorities found marijuana in a pack of his cigarettes; he was fined an additional $250.
    • 2001
      • DMX served another jail sentence in 2001 for driving without a license and possession of marijuana. His appeal to reduce the sentence was denied; rather, he was charged with assault for throwing objects at prison guards. DMX entered rehab to treat his addiction to drugs in 2002.
    • 2002
      • In January, DMX pleaded guilty in New Jersey to 13 counts of animal cruelty (13 neglected pitbulls in his possession), two counts of maintaining a nuisance and one count each of disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    • On the same day that he was released from jail on his previous stint, a television pilot was filmed to portray his road to recovery; however, DMX was arrested three weeks later and the pilot did not evolve into a series.

    seems like he isn’t wrong when he talks about how much police hate him and purposely harass him. The amount of driving charges proves this. He must get stopped every time he drives a car.

    Read about the animal cruelty charges years ago and was really disappointed after thinking he was a massive dog lover.
