DMX In Hot Seat Again, Misses Court Date For Driving Violation

ImageDMX's legal issues continue to mount as the Yonkers bred rapper failed to make an appearance in court yesterday (March 7) to answer for a February traffic arrest in his hometown of Yonkers.

According to reports, X (born Earl Simmons) was found driving with a suspended license on February 2 after blowing a red light. During Wednesday's proceedings the prosecutor asked the judge to issue a warrant for the rapper's arrest, but the request was denied.

X also reportedly missed a pretrial hearing on Tuesday (March 6) related to another traffic arrest.

The gritty voiced lyricist was arrested in June of last year for driving at unreasonable speeds, making unsafe lane changes and driving without a license.

X missed two court dates related to that arrest and was jailed overnight before posting a $2,500 bond.
