Another Car Accident For Rapper DMX

Driving continues

to be a problem for rapper DMX, who was involved in another accident in Harrison,

New York, just nine days after police stopped him for driving his SUV at unreasonably

high speeds.

In the latest driving

incident involving DMX, born Earl Simmons, the rapper was driving a 2006 Chevy

Suburban on the Hutchinson River Parkway on Sunday (June 11) when his SUV was

struck from behind as he attempted to avoid a traffic jam by driving on the

shoulder of the highway.

"There was

congestion on the parkway, and he apparently was driving on the shoulder to

avoid it,” said Westchester County Police Commissioner Monte Long. "When

he pulled back onto the right lane, the other driver didn’t have time to stop.”

Neither vehicle

was damaged, but police issued the rapper a summons for driving on the shoulder

of the road. The other driver was not ticketed.

The rapper must

now appear in Harrison Town Court on July 21 to answer the new charges.

DMX is already

scheduled to appear in White Plains City Court on Friday (June 16) to answer

tickets he received on June 2 for driving 55 mph in a 30 mph zone.

In that incident,

police charged the rapper with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle,

speeding, making an unsafe lane change. He was also ticketed for not wearing

a seatbelt.

In May, the rapper

was arrested at London’s Heathrow airport after he became verbally abusive on

a flight to England. He was issued a caution after the plane landed.

DMX also served

a month in prison in Nov. of 2005 for driving infractions and violating his

probation for amassing more driving tickets even though his license was suspended.

He was released

on Dec. 30, 2005 for good behavior. Below are previous articles on DMX’s driving

habits.
