DMX On House Arrest
DMX has been placed on house arrest after the rapper reportedly failed 4 drug tests and violated the terms of his bail in his $1M tax evasion case.
Here’s the scoop via TMZ:
The rapper and his attorney, Murray Richman, showed up to court Friday morning in NYC and the judge gave him an earful … notably, X failed 4 drug tests for pot and cocaine.
The rapper is out on bail in his tax evasion case, and one of the conditions is no drugs. X violated another condition — not leaving the state without court permission — by flying to St. Louis to handle some family matters.
The judge could easily have thrown the rapper in jail, but showed him mercy by putting him on house arrest. To make sure he doesn’t stray, X has to wear an ankle bracelet. The judge was pretty clear, telling X he couldn’t even go out to mow his own lawn.
Although house arrest sucks…it’s far better than being back in a jail cell.
DMX gotta do better. I’m really concerned for his well-being.
