DMX Stopped by Cops Hours After Release from Jail

8/13/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just hours after DMX was released from jail yesterday ... the rapper was pulled over by police while driving down Sunset Blvd in a rented Mercedes-Benz ... TMZ has confirmed.

X's manager tells TMZ the rapper left a recording studio around 11:20 PM when he was stopped for a minor traffic violation.  We're told once officers asked for X's information, they learned that he didn't have a valid driver's license.

DMX wasn't taken into custody -- for a change -- but he was issued a citation and will be due to appear in court sometime in the near future. We're told the cops allowed a passenger in the car to drive the rapper home.

DMX was released from jail yesterday after serving 18 days of a 90-day sentence stemming from a reckless driving conviction in 2002.

Thanks to the girls at Hollyscoop for the heads up on this one.

I honestly felt sorry for DMX. He was being sent to prison for an ancient violation from his prime, but now, I honestly believe he is too moronic to be allowed in civilized society.

DMX should have known that his probation would be extremely sensitive due to being allowed to just leave jail that early.

Even if police didn't stop him, a picture from the paparazzi would have caused concern over how he would be able to acquire a license in twenty four hours after being sentenced for a reckless driving charge.

Makes you wonder if the car was rented in the passenger's name, and what is currently going through their head.

Why can't they just leave this man alone? Everyone can be found guilty of a crime if the police want to nit pick which is what they see to be doing to him.
