DMX Gives Arizona Several Good Reasons to Send Him Back to Jail

DMX is going to jail, yet again. The rapper, who had recently made some noise about wanting to become a pastor, had been released for good behavior, but has been charged with five counts of violating probation and has admitted to having used cocaine through his nine months of freedom. DMX was sent to jail originally for drugs, weapons, and animal-cruelty charges, but has recently been arrested for speeding, driving with a suspended license, throwing a food tray, assaulting a police officer, and social-security fraud. Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio seems incredulous when discussing the rapper's antics, asking, "How many times do you have to violate the law?" The answer seems obvious to us! He's clearly going for the Guinness record for the most absurdly varied criminal record for a living artist. [Guardian UK]
