DMX busted for Suspended License

Posted By on December 17, 2004

DMX was arrested and charged with driving violations, after police allegedly caught the rapper speeding and driving with a suspended license.

On Wednesday, a New York State Trooper allegedly clocked DMX driving over 100 mph in a 65 mph zone while the rapper was traveling on Interstate 684 in Westchester County.

DMX’s license had been suspended due to an altercation earlier this year at Kennedy Airport in Queens.

In that driving incident, DMX allegedly fought over a parking space with another man, turned on flashing lights in his SUV and chased the man through the parking lot, crashing through a toll booth.

The rapper reached an agreement with officials related to the airport altercation last week. Part of the agreement included a suspended license, a fine and forfeiture of his Ford Expedition.

Because of the charges, which include third degree aggravated unlicensed operation, speeding and driving an unregistered motor vehicle, the rapper is now facing jail time.

He was released on $350 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on January 18th.

Throughout the years, DMX’s name has made headlines in relation to his driving.

In 2000, the NYPD sought the rapper after he allegedly slammed his SUV into a car full of women and left the scene.

In December of 2002, he was charged with various traffic violations in Harrison, New York, after authorities spotted him driving his SUV recklessly.
