PHOENIX (AP) -- The rapper known as DMX has been arrested by Arizona Department of Public Safety officers for speeding.
DPS spokesman Carrick Cook tells The Associated Press the 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested Wednesday night and bonded out of jail Thursday morning.
The highway patrol pulled Simmons over on U.S. 60 at Power Road in Mesa after he was clocked on radar doing 102 mph while driving a Chrysler 300.
Simmons was cited for criminal speed, driving on a suspended and revoked license and reckless driving.
Simmons was released from an Arizona state prison last month after his probation was revoked for failing to submit to drug testing and driving on a suspended license.
