DMX’s Wife Busted For Driving 106 mph

Driving issues

continue to plague DMX and his family, as the platinum-selling rapper’s wife

was charged on Sunday (Jan. 29) with driving 106 mph in North Castle, N.Y.

Police stopped

Tashera Simmons, 34, after they clocked her driving north in a 2000 Mercedes-Benz,

driving 106 mph in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 684–the same road DMX was arrested

doing 104 mph in Dec. 2004.

Ms. Simmons was

charged with speeding, driving an unregistered vehicle, and not using child

restraints, because four children in the car were not wearing seat belts, according

to police.

In Dec. 2004, DMX

was arrested for speeding on the same stretch of highway, a week after he pleaded

guilty to driving through an airport parking gate at John F. Kennedy Airport

in June 2004.

Last April, DMX

was driving on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx, when he hit a car,

which in turn struck a police cruiser.

The rapper claimed

that he was rushing to an area hospital to visit his pregnant wife in the hospital.

A judge sentenced

him to 70 days in prison last November for violating the terms of his probation

in the JFK incident, after he was charged in the April 2005 driving incident.
