DMX ARRESTED… AGAIN
A day after a $5,000 reward was offered by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office for his capture… fugitive rapper DMX was arrested in Florida on Tues (Dec 9) on a warrant issued by a Phoenix judge after he failed to appear court last Friday

WORD IS… the rapper was picked up by FBI agents on Tues (DEC 9) after patient-confidentiality laws prevented Miami police from confirming whether X was at a local rehab facility

ACCORDIN TO KN SOURCES… “A call went out earlier this morning in regards to his location, and the regular police went out to that location, which was a recovery clinic, but because of health care laws, the clinic wouldn’t confirm whether he was there… So the cops left, and apparently the sheriff down here didn’t like that too much, so he called in the feds.”

FBI agents then apprehended DMX at the Palm Island mansion of producer Scott Storch.

X is being held in jail until he goes before a judge in Miami on Wednesday morning
