DMX -- They Wanted Him, They Got Him

12/9/2008 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's the least surprising statement you'll hear today -- DMX is back behind bars.

X was apprehended this afternoon by the FBI -- get this -- on an island off Miami Beach. The Feds were tipped off to his location -- a private residence on Palm Island -- by the Maricopa County Sheriff's office. He was arrested without incident.

The arrest comes after a bench warrant was issued for his arrest last Friday, because he missed a court appearance in Arizona.

He's currently locked up in the Miami-Dade County jail.

Wonder who's gettin' the $5,000?

truthteller , You don't make any sense ' Celebrities do not have a tighter rope to walk in society than average people. Everyone is expected to be a law abiding citizen. The "man'?.. has a family. What a stellar family man!!!! A fine upstanding example . How many children does he have, did you say. That is , how many known children that hhe has spawned.? So what, he won't get help in jail. He's certainly not getting any out of jail. He is in jail as punishment for failing to be a law abiding citizen. And here you are, one of the dime a dozen pollyanna's making excuses for him. Whether or not any of us has issues or problems, has no bearing, He is the one in jail for brutalizing animals and failure to appear...in Court. You hope that he gets help..Bully for you. I hope that the dogs that he abused get justice.

Anyone who tries to justify this kind of criminal activity by saying he is talented would probably say let Jeffery Dahmer off the hook because he had great recipes.

Truthteller @ 12:02 pm...........First things first, Hello Syd, how in the world are you doing?..................Now back to truthteller...................By your statements, robbery, and killing another person, are the only things you regard as crime?............Or, is all the other crimes that DMX did, is just not important?...............Have you read the crimes he is charged with?.............How many are there?...........Now tell me how many crimes are listed on the books at present, locally, state wide, Nationally, and Interenationally?....................Of course you haven't looked any of it up........................The "rope" only gets tight to walk, if you are breaking the law and have a lifestyle to hide from public view....................think about that for a minute..............How many celebraties are there in entertainment, sports, politics, television, etc, etc,.?......................And what kind of number of those celebs never end up in the jail and or prison?................You see, only people who break the law, have a tight rope to walk................a tight rope they ususlly created themselves............Prime examples would be DMX, Michael Vick, and OJ Simpson..........All trying to live their real lives in the shadows............Then caught, judged, and sentenced...................hopefully to prison..............As you stated at the beginning, he has had his run-ins with the law................So, he has always been a criminal?.............Try to find someone else to place your support and empathy toward.................DMX appears to be a criminal against society and his children, by example..................plain and simple..............If he did indeed hurt dogs as stated..............then off to prison...........period.

When they need a qualified private investigator, Phoenix businesses and

individual residents rely on the services of Rix Investigators.
