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

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.

We Bet The Police Know Your Name Too: Trey Songz Arrested For…Throwing Money At A Woman?

Trey Songz has an amazing team because this went unnoticed by everyone.

According to the NY Daily News, Trey was celebrating the release of his album Chapter V in August at Perfections Gentlemen’s Club in Queens NY when he got into a “situation” with a lady at the club around 4am back in August.

Police wrote up a criminal complaint against Trey citing that he threw some cash at the woman (they haven’t released her name) and it hit her in the left eye causing a substantial amount of pain.  They also didn’t cite whether she was just a patron at the club or a possible employee.

But this ordeal wasn’t over because according to the News report, Trey was arrested a month later over the incident and charged with misdemeanor assault. There was also an order of protection issued against Trey on November 1st when he appeared in court.  He had to go back to court for the charge again in February.

While this is unfortunate for Trey who was arrested and the lady who was injured, it is a bit shocking that this was able to stay out of the media for so long.

Hopefully, making it rain won’t have Trey in this predicament again.

Oh, the joys of the co-worker happy hour. It’s a good way to get to know other peers around the office in a relaxed environment that doesn’t involve beating each other to the coffee machine in the morning, exchanging emails and jumping from conference call to conference call without a moment in between.

Even though the office happy hour is an effective, informal way to be at-peace with the people you see every day, it has its limitations and “unwritten” rules. Always be mindful that even though your co-workers are nice and you should be comfortable around them, they are still connected to you FIRST on a professional level, so take heed to your behavior in relaxed surroundings, especially ones that involve alcohol and dim lighting!

As you get prepared for that next happy hour gathering with your fellow employees, keep in mind these important tips to make sure you leave behind a good impression and not a sloppy one.
