DMX Arrested -- Race Definitely a Factor

5/7/2008 7:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops say DMX was driving so damn fast on an Arizona highway, it took more than three months to catch up with the guy.

Scottsdale police finally arrested the rapper at his home yesterday after they claim he broke 100 MPH at three separate checkpoints back in January.

According to police, stationary cameras first snapped DMX in triple digits around 8:24 PM . One minute later he was spotted again -- this time doing 114. Three minutes later he was clocked doing 101 ... and he did all that in a yellow 1966 Chevy Nova II.


DMX, real name Earl Simmons, faces charges of racing on a highway, reckless driving, two counts of endangerment, three counts of criminal speed and driving on a suspended license.

I live in the next city from DMX and have a family member who works for the P.D. here. DMX in trouble is not news, he is always out in the community and always geting caught for something.

Terelle you idiot when have you heard of DMX killing dogs? That would be Mike Vick. You should be honored to have someone thats not a cactus in Arizona. Also, was 114 his speed or the temp? He was probably suffocating from the heat and needed the wind.

Sweet face, you really shouldn't call people names if you don't know what's up. There is a case involving DMX and dogs. Who is the idiot here.
