DMX released from Phoenix jail
PHOENIX (AP) - Rapper DMX has been released from a Phoenix jail after serving a 90-day sentence for felony convictions.
The rap artist, whose real name is Earl Simmons, left a Maricopa County jail Thursday shortly after 4 a.m. on a $10,000 bond.
A spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says Simmons will likely return to court to face charges added while in jail. Simmons was booked on a charge of probation violation and aggravated assault for allegedly throwing a tray at a jail officer.
The 38-year-old rapper pleaded guilty to felony charges of theft, drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty on Dec. 30.
A message left with Simmons' attorney was not immediately returned.
