DMX’s case was
adjourned today (Oct. 11), as the rapper faced charges of violating the conditions
of his release after he was involved in a car crash last year at Kennedy Airport
in New York.
Under terms of
a conditional discharge, DMX could be sent to prison if he receives any violations
within a year.
While the Yonkers-bred
rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, remained silent as the judge suspended
his case until Oct. 25, he was reportedly chewing gum and jumping around as
he spoke to reporters, calling the charges "ludicrous."
Once his case was
adjourned, DMX was also seen dancing down the steps of the Queens Criminal Court
building, according to the Associated Press.
very stressful," he said. "Nobody likes to come to court."
DMX pleaded guilty
last December to reckless endangerment. He confessed to using Valium at the
time he smashed his SUV into a gate at Kennedy Airport on June 24, 2004, and
telling a parking lot attendant that he was a federal agent.
After the airport
incident, the rapper was arrested twice for traffic violations, including speeding
at 104 mph near his Westchester County home.
He was fined and
ordered to surrender his 1998 Ford Expedition.
DMX’s lawyer, Murray
Richman, said the rapper was speeding to rush his nine-months-pregnant wife
to the hospital.
Richman and Queens
District Attorney Richard Brown are currently discussing a possible agreement,
according to Brown’s spokeswoman, Nicole Navas.
After his court
appearance, DMX promoted his upcoming movie “Last Hours” and album
Here We Go Again, due out in December.
