DMX

The First Arrest

of 2010

3/9/2010 10:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0309_dmx_ex2-1DMX was arrested earlier today in Arizona -- and now his lawyer is reaching out to the one man who he believes can save him ... Dr. Drew Pinsky.

The details of the arrest are unclear -- but the rapper's lawyer Gary Jenkins tells us "He's been battling addiction for some time and he's in need of treatment."

Jenkins also tells us, "We're hoping that maybe Dr. Drew might be able to help him."

DMX -- aka Earl Simmons -- was arrested a bazillion times over the last two years for all sorts of reasons ... including drug charges.

Jenkins added, "He's a talented man ... we're praying for him."

UPDATE 5:04 PM PT: We've also learned more details of DMX's arrest. We're told he allegedly violated the terms of his probation by using illegal drugs.

UPDATE 8:06 PM PT: DMX has been booked on five counts of probation violation and is being held without bond. We're also told he launched a few expletives during his initial court hearing tonight -- we'll have video of it in the morning ... so stay tuned!

Dr. Drew is a QUACK, I would choose Dr. Phil over Dr. Drew any day of the week.

Exactly. All these rappers are the reason kids to do all those things. Drugs, ho smacking, robbery, talking in a moronic language, and just shooting us for no particular reason. And they don't even have to be underground to make 'hip hop' fans cap a bitch.

Come on D, get some help baby! No shame in that game. I don't want to see one of my favorite rappers of all time keep getting arrested. Make rap songs man, not rap sheets. Leave the worst behind and move forward. Never too late man. People love you and you're too talented to be doing stupid s---! Talk to someone and learn about yourself brother. Everyone needs help sometime.
