DMX

Passes Out

In Cop Car During DUI Bust

DMX
was either wasted, exhausted, or both following his DUI arrest Friday morning ... because he passed the hell out once he got inside the squad car -- and TMZ has obtained dash cam footage of the entire bust.

TMZ broke the story ... the rapper was popped in South Carolina around 3AM Friday after police determined he had been driving under the influence.

It wasn't immediately clear whether X was busted for alcohol or some other substance -- but based on the dash cam footage, it appears to have been for alcohol ... and not just because X was a little sleepy.

In the footage, the cop asks X if he's been boozing, and X says he had one drink -- but later it sounds like he admits to drinking "4 or 5" (the audio is pretty bad). Despite the drinks, X insists he's not too drunk to drive. The cop doesn't buy it.

X was booked for DUI and hauled to a nearby station. He was released from custody roughly an hour later.

Bonus: you have to see how X handles his itchy nose with his hands cuffed behind his back. Classic.

It makes no sense to be a celebrity, and get stopped for a DUI and you can get a driver/chauffeur.....

It's scary that people are still dumb enough to drive under the influence. Police are being way to easy on these people, once is enough!!!!!

I have a feeling a 'not guilty' plea isn't going to fly.

a long time Leno fan!    

All the money everybody has made from him, its about time every one of those people and outlets HELP DMX. He is talented so somebody step in already and walk him through his sobriety. If this is what a group of his fans do for the talented artist then what kind of fans are you really?? He's obviously been there, done that from his record and this video - someone, do something to help this man out! don't just stand there, point your finger and criticize! help him so he doesn't go the way of other addicts before him.

He seemed to proffer politeness; appears to follow the instructions of the Police officer - though after drinking until 3am, should it be unusual that the human is sleepy? We are not really what could be described as 'nocturnal'.
