Last Friday morning, rapper DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested in South Carolina around 3 a.m., for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with no license, and not wearing his seatbelt.
Even though it’s not clear what condition the troubled rapper was in at the time of his arrest, a video footage has now surfaced showing DMX passed out in the arresting cop’s car.
In the video, the cop asks X if he’s been drinking, and he replies with “I had one drink”– but later it sounds like he admits to drinking “4 or 5” times.
Check out the video below:
And as far as the arrest is concerned, the rapper’s camp is disputing the TMZ report about him being booked for a DUI:
“Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false. He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it,” the MC’s rep told MTV News in a written statement, adding that the rapper was charged with driving without a license.
