DMX Arrested!

5/9/2008 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMX was busted again this morning at his home in Arizona -- and the sheriffs tell us he barricaded himself in his bedroom when they came to get him!

DMX was arrested at 3:00 AM at his home in Cave Creek on seven misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and four felony drug possession charges. During a search of his home, cops found more than they bargained for -- including a number of weapons and drugs, as well as five pit bull puppies -- and filed additional charges against him.

According to Sheriff Arpaio, DMX attempted to barricade himself in his bedroom at the time of the search warrant but eventually came out, offered no further resistance, and was booked. And how's this for weird? The dogs were taken to the First Avenue Jail, where they will remain under the care of female inmates.

Joe Arpaio is the Sheriff of Maricopa County, (Phooenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek region), and is called "America'a Toughest Sheriff." I believe he has been a guest of Jay Leno on the "Tonight Show", and he's often on the national cable news channels talking about different issues. He's not someone you would want to cross.

That said, most of the celebrities who come for visits from California (our next door neighbor), or New York, usually keep things low-key. They can get swamped by paparazzi in those places, but I've never seen paparazzi in Phoenix or Tucson. Celebrites come here for vacation, or to buy a home, because of the peace and privacy.

I travel often from Tucson to L.A., (it's a 65-70 minute flight), and I've seen celebrities on those flights. I've seen celebrities around town here too (the J.W. Marriott, the Arizona Inn, Canyon Ranch, and Miraval are all here), and no one bothers them.

DMX brought this attention on himself by making the choices he made. If you make good choices, and don't hurt anyone, no one would get in your business.

Everyone of these animal abusing types should not get a trial, they should be automatically taken out back and a bullet put in their head.
