The Curious Case Of DMX’s Most Recent Arrest In South Carolina: Was He Or Was He Not Under The Influence?

July 28, 2013  |  

I mean, to be honest, the only – and most important – reason we need to know if DMX was under the influence is because he could have been a danger to other drivers on the road. But other than that, it’s a sad day when you can almost always say, “I’m sure there was a valid reason who it this time too.”

Early Friday morning, around 3am, DMX (aka Earl Simmons) was arrested after his car was spotted by the South Carolina Highway Patrol moving quite erratically.

According to CNN, he was given a field sobriety test and failed which is why he was then arrested for driving under the influence, driving without a license and driving without a seatbelt.

As luck and maybe a good lawyer would have it, X was released within an hour.

Here’s the thing: his publicist Domenick Nati says he was given a breathalyzer and passed it which is why he was ultimately released and sent home. Yes, DMX now resides in South Carolina.

But then there’s the above video obtained by TMZ. Maybe he just couldn’t help how sleepy he was but I’m thinking you might want to stay awake to see what the cops are doing. Then there’s the notion that too many drinks will put you to sleep fairly quickly.

Sadly, we don’t expect anything else from him these days.
