DMX Cited For Carrying Concealed Weapon In Scottsdale, Arizona

Rap star DMX’s problems

continue with the law, as the chart topping artist was cited for carrying a

concealed handgun outside of a Scottsdale, Arizona nightclub on Friday (June

16).

According to police,

DMX was stopped near Scottsdale nightclub Buzz, after they saw him take a handgun

and place it underneath the front seat of the car he was driving, a 1964 Chevy

convertible.

Simmons, who was

not arrested, was cited for a misdemeanor charge of not having a permit to conceal

the weapon in the vehicle.

"He had the

top down, the cops were right in the area, and they saw him take out the gun

and put it under the front seat," Scottsdale Police Detective Sam Bailey

told The Arizona Republic.

The charges are

the latest in a series of incidents with the law over the past month.

On June 2, the

rapper was stopped in White Plains for driving erratically. In that incident,

police said he cut another motorist off and was speeding in his 2001 Chevy Suburban.

DMX, born Earl

Simmons, was subsequently charged with a misdemeanor charge of aggravated unlicensed

operation of a motor vehicle.

Just nine days

later on June 16, the rapper was issued a summons for driving on the shoulder

of the road, after his 2006 Chevy Suburban was struck by another vehicle as

he attempted to reenter traffic, while avoiding congestion on the Hutchinson

River Parkway in Harrison, New York.

The rapper was

due in court on June 16 to face the June 2 charges, but his appearance was postponed

at the behest of his attorney, Murray Richman.

He will now appear

in court on June 21 to face the White Plains charges.

Additionally, the rapper will appear in court in Harrison, New York on July

21 for the incident on the Hutchinson River Parkway.
