DMX Free On Bail

DMX walked out of a New York county jail after posting $25,000 bail and spending a night behind bars after failing to appear in court to answer to traffic charges.

DMX’s lawyer told the judge the performer was sick.

The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested June 2nd in White Plains, N.Y., for speeding, making unsafe lane changes, not wearing a seat belt and driving without a license, police said. He was due back in court on July 24th.

Simmons served 70 days in jail last year for violating his parole following a 2004 incident where he posed as an undercover federal agent and crashed his sport utility vehicle through a security gate at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

He was also cited in early June for carrying a concealed handgun in his vehicle.
