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!

They want to damage his reputation because he refused what they want him to be. They may kill him as what they did to tupac and michael jackson.

What you talking bout Willis    

It is what it is, This man will not stop using till the rock hits bottom, He needs to be cut off from all source of funds for one, If there is any left, And maybe a nice stiff 3 year bid will do him some justic. This is not an over nite battle , he needs some time to get is mind right. If Dr. Drew cant help him he will wind up hurting someone for that next fix. I can say im pulling for the brotha and I been there ,done that, That 3 year bid keeps me clean for 13 years now. Pulling for ya DMX !!!

I think he couldn't made the songs that are really much appreciated by myself without all those drugs! If you know some of his lyrics, he can't be a stupid man! Got his heart right, got his mind right. Drugs can make you happy for a while and you can add a little creativity to your person. But you need to move on, you need to give up drugs DMX! I only wish you good things in life! hope you read my comment! :) no homo :))) PEACE

i don't think he should be on cele rehab he get's enough bad publicity as it is damn some things are private even when you become famous. he does need help, but you have to want the help u can't be fixed if you don't want to be fixed every1 has flaws none of are perfect his time will come when enough is enough i just hope he doesn't wait till it maybe the end of his life having an addiction is something difficult to deal with and you can believe in God and have an addiction i think he can and will pull through

First off God Bless this Man Anyone who truly listens to his music could clearly see he is touched by God he has a gift to spread the message of Jesus ! Who better for the devil to attack? (Hello) his goal is to Steal Kill and Destroy!!! Listen to "Lord give me a sign" by DMX before you Judge this young Man!!!! "Judge Ye not for Ye shall be Judged!!"
***Yes he needs help so why dont you Pray for him instead of looking at his every mistake! By :Bridget
