who surrendered to authorities on Monday (Feb. 25th) to
begin serving jail time for a traffic violation and possession
of marijuana, was hit with a new charge when he arrived at
the Erie County Correctional Facility in upstate New York.
A few hours after
arriving, DMX was taken from his jail cell and hustled to
a courtroom, where he was arraigned in a charge of Contempt
Of Court for missing the original date to begin his jail stay.
DMX and his lawyer were surprised by this move and have leveled
charges of selective prosecution at the Erie County D.A.,
Clark did agree
that a Contempt Of Court charge from a traffic violation is
not common, but he said that his case was unusual. DMX's bail
in this new charge was set at a high $250,000 to "get
the his attention." Proceedings will begin Wednesday,
