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.
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
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.
