DMX Arrest-O-Meter

Inspired by the runaway success of the NowPublic Oil-O-Meter, I thought we might also benefit from turning our celebrified attention to the ever-crazy and arrest-prone world of the notorious Earl Simmons, aka rapper DMX.

Let’s run down the recent past, shall we? It’s a pretty impressive list, by any rapper’s standards.

WHEN: July 19, 2008
WHERE: Phoenix, Arizona
WHAT: Medical identity theft

Earl Simmons a.k.a. DMX — a rap artist who seems to run afoul of the law frequently — was arrested in a Phoenix mall on Saturday for identity theft.

Apparently, DMX used the name Troy Jones when seeking medical care for pneumonia, according to KNXV-TV in Phoenix. He also used a social security number that didn’t belong to him. Allegedly, DMX did this to get out of paying a $7500 bill.

DMX is set to break the record for most arrested rapper following his arrest last Monday (June 23) in Miami on a warrant for not having a valid driver’s license.

WHAT: Attempted robbery, criminal impersonation and criminal mischief

Hip hop star turned Hollywood actor DMX has been arrested on charges that he and another man tried to steal a car at JFK Airport in New York.
