DMX Blames Probation Violation on a "Sip" of Booze. Court Records Claim it Was a Little More Than That
|DMX says he violated his probation by taking a "sip" of alcohol.|
What DMX claims was just a sip of alcohol is just the tip of the iceberg, though -- if you believe court documents obtained by New Times.
This is the sixth time "X," a.k.a. Earl Simmons, has been arrested in Maricopa County, and he's currently enrolled in an 18-month drug and alcohol treatment program he was scheduled to complete in about three weeks. Part of the program requires him to not drink or do drugs.
At a performance in Scottsdale earlier this month, "X" says he slipped up.
"And I realize I shouldn't have done it [take a sip of alcohol]. I wasn't done with the program.
They let me out. I should have protected myself better," "X" told Fox 10 during a jailhouse interview over the weekend.
However, court documents claim that DMX, who is widely known to have struggled with cocaine in the past, violated his probation for several different offenses -- none of which include taking a "sip" of alcohol.
According to the arresting officer, "Mr. Simmons was arrested for probation violation for ongoing use of cocaine, use of Oxycontin without a prescription, failing to submit to drug testing, failing to participate in counseling programs, failing to make payments, and
driving on a suspended license."
Sounds slightly more serious than a "sip" of alcohol. Check out the Fox 10 interview below.
