DMX not to serve Jail Time

Posted By on November 22, 2004

According to the New York Daily News, DMX and prosecutors have reached a deal in the rapper’s road rage incident, which occurred at JFK Airport in June.

DMX will avoid jail time and admit responsibility for the scuffle, which started over a parking spot.

Reports said DMX and a man were after the same parking spot in the area. The rapper and an associate, Jackie Hudgins, chased the other driver with flashing lights and sirens on his SUV and crashed through a toll both.

When police arrived, DMX was allegedly pulling the other driver out of the car in an attempt to assault him.

A search of his car turned up a billy club and a small amount of crack cocaine.

He was later treated at a New York hospital and was subsequently charged with menacing, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Last month DMX’s lawyers and the prosecution were close to a deal, but it fell through when the rapper allegedly refused to admit responsibility for the crime.

Under the terms of the deal, DMX will serve no prison time and be charged with a misdemeanor offense.
