Dogs Rescued from DMX’s House

KPNX television in Phoenix is reporting that the Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff's Department raided rapper DMX's home this morning in Cave Creek and removed 12 distressed pit bulls.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not home at the time. News 12 is reporting a large cache of weapons was found in the home as well.

DMX has a long rap sheet (pun intended). He was arrested in 1999 for allegedly stabbing and shooting his mother. He was later cleared of those charges. In 2002, he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges.
