Rapper DMX has reportedly been denied bail and he will have to stay behind bars after he violated the terms of his probation last week in Arizona. Details about the bail hearing hit the internet this morning (November 24th).
Rapper DMX, real name Earl Simmons, made a brief appearance Wednesday morning in Maricopa County Superior Court. Simmons, 39, denied violating his probation on drug charges, failing to submit to a drug test and driving with a suspended license. Court Commissioner Christine Mulleneaux ordered Simmons to remain in jail without bond. Simmons ended up behind bars in Arizona — for the sixth time in 10 years — last week. He was three months short of completing an 18-month substance abuse program. (KTAR News)
In related news, beyond spending Thanksgiving locked up in jail, DMX will have to wait until early December before he will get his next hearing in the matter.
Maricopa County Superior Court staff tell us that Commissioner Christine Mulleneaux set another hearing for December 9 at 8 a.m. As we mentioned a couple of days ago, DMX (he's Earl Simmons in the stacks of police and court paperwork about him), told a TV station that he simply took a "sip of alcohol" while performing. The probation department says differently, accusing him of blowing off his required drug treatment program and using drugs. He was arrested after police suspected him of using cocaine and Oxycontin.
