DMX

Arrested

Driving Without a License

DMX Mug Shot

DMX
should know if he, of all people, drives a car without a driver's license ... he's going to end up in handcuffs -- and that's exactly what happened this morning in South Carolina. 

The rapper was handcuffed and taken to Spartanburg Detention Center around 2AM ... after an officer saw him driving a 1978 Buick (sweet) and pulled him over for allegedly driving without a license.

DMX spoke to the local FOX station as he left the police station and said, "No, I didn't have a license ... put the cuffs on me. Brought me here. I paid the money. Basically, just 5 hours wasted for nothing."

And there's this DMX bonus -- his 5-month-old daughter was in the back seat during the whole incident.

And how does an officer pull someone over for an out of sight offense like driving without a license. More like he was pulled over for being black and then popped for not having a license. The complaint doesn't identify any other behaviour that would justify the stop and he wasn't charged otherwise. Racial Profiling.

You should know better to get or have a car with no license. When they complain that they're singled out for being black and driving a gang banger car, the cops say, "Well and 95% of the time we find guns, drugs & a bankroll." LoL!

He needs to plead hispanic. Not speaking english and being a criminal immigrant will work. At least it does in Ca.

If your born black, your automatically guilty. It's a numbers game, the more black people you pull over, the better odds of putting them in jail or writing a ticket that will never get paid.

Do me a favor TMZ, instead of posting every time this guy gets arrested, how about you post when he doesn't get arrested? Doing this will cut down on the number of posts.

A 1978 Buick is a hunk of sh*t. Think "Family Truckster" with dieseling and the whole 9 yards.
