DMX Taken Into Custody Again This Time For Leaving Court-Ordered Drug Treatment Program



DMX was taken into custody Tuesday for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program and using cocaine and Oxycodone.

The “Get At Me Dog” rapper was put in handcuffs in Manhattan Federal Court following a brief hearing before Judge Jed Rakoff.

The judge said he had tried to accommodate DMX’s tour schedule, but that the rapper had still failed a drug test, left a treatment program and failed to travel with a drug counselor as he’d pledged to do.

“He in effect said, ‘Judge, trust me.’ I will have a drug counselor,” Rakoff said. “That was a great big lie ... He said, in effect, ‘screw you.'"

DMX, 47, took two puffs of an asthma inhaler, removed his shoelaces and emptied his pockets of a wad of cash and other papers. Then U.S. Marshals took him into custody sporting a white t-shirt with a smiley face and peace sign.

Prior to the hearing DMX had appeared stressed, but at its conclusion he was stone-faced.

He’ll likely remain in custody until his sentencing on March 28, meaning at least three upcoming tour dates will be canceled.

DMX pleaded guilty in November to $1.7 million tax fraud, which carries a maximum of five years in prison.

As part of his case, DMX was ordered to attend a drug treatment program.

But around January 16 the rapper left the program to tend to his 1-year-old boy who had become extremely sick, DMX’s attorney, Murray Richman, said.

During that period DMX relapsed, pretrial services officer Leo Barrios said.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, had also pledged to travel on tour with a drug counselor, but that had not happened, Barrios added.

“I love the guy, but he’s a f--k up,” Richman told reporters, adding that the child was on the mend.

The rapper has frequently arrived late to appearances before Rakoff, as was the case on Tuesday. He was scheduled to appear at 11:15 a.m., but Rakoff rescheduled the hearing to 12:45 p.m. due to DMX’s tardiness. Richman said his client was somewhere on the West Side Highway.

“I’d like to tell you I have total control of his movements, I don’t,” Richman told the judge.
