Breaking News: Rapper DMX Arrested Today at Scott Storch's House

DMX Mug.jpg It's been well-documented that rapper DMX is having  possibly the worst year of his life. At last count, he'd been arrested seven times in 2008 alone for charges that range from identity theft and animal cruelty to drug possession and failure to appear in court.

As of this afternoon, DMX (born Earl Simmons) has been arrested once again, this time at the home of record producer Scott Storch. On Friday, December 5th, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona issued a 5,000 reward to anyone who could offer information on DMX's whereabouts after he failed to appear in court earlier that day.

His attorney's argued that DMX missed court in Arizona because he was in rehab. An undisclosed source told CrossFade this afternoon that DMX was actually in South Florida at the time with a young woman from Miramar who delivered his baby over the weekend.

Apparently, news of DMX's whereabouts reached another young female from Georgia who ratted him out to police in Arizona. Acting on the tip, DMX was picked up this afternoon by FBI agents at Storch's Palm Island home (a property which is also currently under foreclosure) and is now being held in the Miami-Dade jail until he goes before a judge on Wednesday morning. He's not expected to be offered bond and will most likely be extradited back to Arizona within 15 days. It's currently unclear if Storch was home at the time of DMX's arrest.
