The Associated Press this morning reported that X was arrested in Greenville, S.C. for driving under the influence and without a license. A publicist just sent out the following statement that says while X was detained, he was given a breathalyzer test that he passed and was subsequently released.
“Allegations about DMX being arrested for drunk driving are false. He was arrested early this morning but quickly released. X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles.”
No word on whether or not the driving without a license charge stuck though. If I know X, I’m guessing it did.
UPDATE: HipHopWired spoke to a Highway Patrol officer who insists X did fail his sobriety test and was released after paying a fine.
