Warrant Out for DMX

12/5/2008 2:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

DMXIf you happen to see DMX today, call the cops -- dude is a wanted man.

A Maricopa County judge just issued a bench warrant for the rapper's arrest, after D missed a scheduled court appearance in Arizona to face drug, identity theft and animal cruelty charges.

And it gets worse -- even when D is captured, the judge has ruled he must post a $120,000 cash bond or else he'll be sent to the slammer.

There is a silver lining -- word on the street is that DMX is currently in rehab somewhere. Unfortunately, it's still no excuse for missing court.

UPDATE: DMX's attorney in Florida, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ to his knowledge, the rapper is currently in rehab at an undisclosed location. Cohen claims D was supposed to show the judge documentation proving his rehab stint during his court appearance today, but obviously that didn't happen.

Good. Maybe that will keep him from putting out any more albums that he's calling music. Hip Hop Hack.

Just another celebrity that thinks he can do anything he wants. How many times has he been arrested?!?! You'd think he'd learn something. Nope, its all about him! Rehab at an undisclosed location my butt - he's out partying somewhere and laughing at all the people that spend their hard-earned money on his crap music!!

It would've been more notable & newsworthy to report on DMX if he DIDN"T have a warrant out for his arrest; this is just business as usual for DMX as he burns through whatever remains of his 'rap money'.

DMX was not in rehab as of last weekend. He was at Club LivingRoom in downtown Ft.Lauderdale drinking, and partying it up!
