This morning legendary rapper DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was arrested and booked into a South Carolina jail after he was pulled over for driving without a license. 

Simmons already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching Simmons leave a gas station, get into a car and drive away. -

Officers pulled DMX over and reportedly noticed several traffic citations from other counties where he was also accused of driving without a license. He only possessed a state ID card. The vehicle was released to a licensed passenger who was in the car with him.

After his initial arrest DMX went before a judge and was released after paying a fine.
