A bench warrant has been issued for DMX’s arrest by a Maricopa County judge, after the rapper missed a scheduled court appearance in Arizona to face drug, identity theft and animal cruelty charges.
The judge has ruled that DMX, born Earl Simmons, must post a $120,000 cash bond or else he’ll be sent to jail. The embattled star is reportedly in rehab, according to TMZ.com. Bradford Cohen, DMX’s Florida attorney tells TMZ to his knowledge, the rapper is currently in rehab at an undisclosed location. Cohen claims Simmons was supposed to show the judge documentation proving his rehab stint during his court appearance today, but obviously that didn’t happen.
