Sheriff Offers $5000 Reward For DMX's Capture

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona is reportedly offering a $5,000 reward to anyone with information that could lead to the capture and arrest of rapper DMX. As reported earlier, DMX missed a scheduled court appearance in Maricopa County on Friday (December 5) and a local judge issued a warrant for the rapper's arrest.

It was the second time that DMX had failed to appear in court and the judge also raised the rapper's bond to $ 120,000.

"This guy is a major annoyance to the criminal justice system," Arpaio said. "But we will track him down, and he will face a different kind of music in a court of law."

Arpaio promotes himself as 'America's Toughest Sheriff' and is controversial for the way he runs Maricopa County jails. Arapio makes inmates wear pink underwear and pink handcuffs.

DMX is facing a slew of charges in Arizona including drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty.

Charles Kolzelka, DMX's lawyer, revealed Friday that the rapper missed his court appearance last week because he is currently in drug rehabilitation at an undisclosed location.
