Rap artist DMX's trouble with the law took another unique turn on Friday when the rapper allegedly triggered a three-car collision in New York that involved a police car, according to Reuters.
The rapper was driving on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx late Friday night when his vehicle struck another car, sending it crashing into a police cruiser. Two officers and the driver of the first car involved in the crash were reportedly treated for minor injuries. DMX was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license following the incident, and was released shortly thereafter.
The rapper and actor (real name Earl Simmons), has seemingly spent more time in handcuffs than on the charts of late, most recently for an incident at New York's JFK Airport in which he attempted to steal a car and, when confronted, claimed he was an FBI agent. The rapper pleaded guilty to those charges in December of last year (see "DMX Pleads Guilty To DUI And Reckless Endangerment"), but was arrested just over a week later on charges of driving with a suspended license, speeding and driving an unregistered vehicle after he was pulled over doing 104 in a 65 mph zone (see "DMX Arrested For Driving Violations - Again"). DMX has pleaded not guilty to those charges.
