      Rapper DMX again arrested in South Carolina

      GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The rapper known as DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina.

      A spokeswoman for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says airport police arrested the 42-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just after 5 p.m. Monday.

      Rosylin Weston says officers familiar with Simmons' previous arrests for driving with a suspended license arrested him after seeing him behind the wheel of a vehicle.

      Jail records show Simmons was booked on charges of driving under suspension, having an uninsured vehicle and not having a licensed vehicle. Court records list no attorney for him, and Simmons' spokesman did not immediately return a message.

      This is Simmons' fourth arrest in South Carolina this year. His other charges this year include several charges of driving under the influence and simple possession of marijuana.
