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!

I know what DMX needs and it's not another Quack doctor looking for publicity and fame for his name. No doctor Drew can save DMX.He is hurting just like evryday human beings do sometimes, He just rap and make movies and more money than some people can count, But he is is pain. First I would start by saying let's keep the love real and pure not that fake ass lying kinky what ever floats your boat like the drugs he's taking the real thing from real people who care. He needs to meet my family then marry me! My family is universal. Like the real God we serve. Save yourself brother get off that road of self destruction you have come to far to let it, or them, or whatever it is bothering you get you down. Salam alikum peace to you brother I pray you find it. I would like to walk it with you. Love much love man!
