DMX: When It Arraigns It Pours

7/21/2008 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If six arrests in a year aren't a big enough problem, DMX admitted today that the high-profile lawyer representing him will be none other than ... a court-appointed public defender.

Earl "DMX" Simmons appeared in front a Maricopa County, Ariz. judge today, facing charges of stealing and identity theft. Cops busted DMX for allegedly using a false name and Social Security number at a doctor's office in April to get out of a $7,500 bill.

Bond was set at $50,000. He's due back in court on July 24.

This is really sad. Here is aperson who has what we can only dream of, yet he has no one tat can sit him down and ask..."WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!" Too many YES men and not enough real friends. Here is a man fihgting his own demons, without a single person to help him. If he does not get help soon..we will be reading an obituary any day now.
Wish i could be there....I'm a mom of two that can set him straight!!

I guess he's earning double credit for "street cred". He has firmly ensconced himself in Maricopa County which has one of the finest sheriff's of all....


YIppee!

what the hell did he go to the doctors for $7500 I thought he had money, maybe all the arrests he's had this year got his life savings, since he hasen't come out with nothing new

I clicked on here to comment, but before I did, I said I wouldn't read any of the comments on here because I know there would be at least one racist comment. I read them anyway. And thanks TMZTHEBEST...your ignorant a$$ was the one to give it. I love how racists clog up the boards whenever there is a person of color doing something stupid. If you haven't noticed....90% of the stupid celebs on TMZ are white. When you insult a group of people in such a racist way...I suggest you read before you submit. The only thing worse than a racist is a dumb racist. Everybody already assumes you are all dumb a$$ hicks anyway. I suggest you get an education. You are the kind of hatefilled, nasty, jacka$$ that gives America a bad name. Get an education you ignorant dumb prick!
