DMX Indicted


has been indicted by an Erie County grand jury on charges

that he failed to show up at Cheektowaga town court, to

serve his jail time for a traffic violation conviction last

year. DMX, who was supposed to serve 15 days for driving

without a license, was released in March after showing up

13 days late to begin serving his time, because he was finishing

up promotional work for "Exit Wounds," in which

he starred opposite Steven Segal.

DMX is also

facing felony assault charges in Alden after a scuffle with

officers. According to charges, DMX became upset when authorities

told him he had to stay the full duration of his sentence,

due to his behavior while locked down. DMX responded to

the news by throwing a food tray, which struck and bruised

a correctional officer, resulting in a felony charge of

assaulting a corrections officer.

"He vehemently

denies assaulting anyone." DMX's lawyer Paul Cambria
