8:30 AM PT --
DMX has been released from jail, but there's a catch ... law enforcement tells us he's been placed under house arrest. It's unclear at this point how long he'll have to stay home.

And for the record ... DMX tells TMZ he was totally unaware there was any weed in the car.

7:44 AM PT --
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ ... DMX smelled like he was drunk and was in possession of WEED at the time of the arrest.

Cops say X was a passenger in an F350 truck that made an illegal lane change. When they stopped the ride, cops say they found a bag of weed sitting on the arm rest of the passenger door, where X was sitting.

Cops say one of the officers recognized DMX during the arrest and knew there was an active warrant for his arrest.

The officers proceeded to search the car ... and found 3 more bags of weed under the driver's floor board. ... so they cited the driver for possession of weed.

According to the report, DMX became "very aggressive with his words and was making multiple idle threats."

X was ultimately cited for weed and hauled to a nearby jail to deal with the warrant.

DMX
was arrested in South Carolina last night -- but immediately called BS on the cops -- screaming out allegations that he was set up ... and it was all caught on tape.

According to DMX, the cops pulled over a car he was riding in for making an illegal U-turn. During the stop, cops say they found weed in the car and put the rapper in 'cuffs.  Cops say they also noticed a warrant out for DMX stemming from a previous driving without a license case and informed him that he needed to go to jail.

082113_dmx_arrest_launchX was pissed and began ranting about the situation while a female friend of his recorded the entire incident.

"This ain't no normal traffic stop," X screamed ... "18 cops, 5 cars, get the f**k outta here man."

X also claims the driver did nothing wrong -- and the car should never have been pulled over in the first place.

"It was legal ... they got nothing."

At one point, you can hear X say, "I'm sweatin' like a motherf**ker, yo."

X was eventually hauled to jail in Greer County, SC -- and he's scheduled to face a judge sometime this morning.

Law enforcement sources say ... X is expected to be sentenced to 15 days behind bars ... but will most likely only have to serve 10, if he's a good boy.

During the arrest, X suffered what is believed to be a slight asthma attack ... and paramedics responded to the scene to treat the rapper. Don't worry, he's fine now.

DMX= Whiner crybaby punk, like most of these little toddler men so called 'entertainers'.
Yo, Earl, grow up.
Get responsible. Being Black does not give you a friggin' free pass to thumb your nose at the law and your responsibilities and to be a jerk for all the world to see.
Also, we don't care about what you think of the police, their response, or whatever. You have no credibility so shut up.

Too many cops and cars, the stop was a set-up. That said, look at the location, DMX should have been smarter and also CLEAN. Should also have had security guards and also have taken care of any warrants.

This ain't no normal traffic stop
.
Of course it isn't you clown. It was a stop because they magically saw it was you in the tinted windows of that car you were driving it. And that outstanding warrant for not having a licence? You're DMX YO! You don't need no mother fuquing licence, YO! And sweating like a Mother Fuqueing Pig? Must be the Meth YO! And the PIGS? YO! it's a set-up.
.
Because you are DMX and you're a bad man. LOL!!!!! ***** is more like it. YO~!

So...this moron is mad that they illegally discovered he was legally wanted on a warrant?

It's like a bank robber who gets away with it being upset because he got busted for jaywalking.

You know, if you are going to be screaming "18 cops and 5 cars", the prostitute you hired for the night shouldn't be showing two police cars and five officers.
.
Actually, that would be about right. The first car stops him, a single back-up car comes because it's in the middle of the night, and then a supervisor comes because it's DMX and he's screaming about THE POLICE and illegal stops.
.
You are an idiot DMX. Crying out about all this shyte going on when it's a normal stop for people who break the law, who have outstanding warrants, who have drugs, and most importantly are stupid fuqueing ass holes who are screaming in the middle of the night.
.
Oh, and you don't sound bad, you sound like a mouthy little Bytch who can't figure out how to pass the written part of the drivers test.

It happens. My ex was in the back seat of a car and this one cop that knew him and that he had a history of unpaid tickets pulled car over and ticketed only my ex for no seatbelt. "Oh, you have 10 tickets to take care of and here's one more. Have a nice day." SMH

LOL this thr fkr here! Damn bro how hard is it to make sure you got no warrants when you got cash? Fk I understand regular joe who can't afford to maybe pay off a ticket and has to take chances driving/riding around but no excuse for any celeb to not have a ticket squared away especially if you gonna be riding around with some weed or w/e...
