DMX Sent To Jail For Violating


It was a ruff day for the Ruff Ryder.

DMX was taken into custody Tuesday for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program and using cocaine and Oxycodone.

The “Get At Me Dog” rapper was put in handcuffs in Manhattan Federal Court following a brief hearing before Judge Jed Rakoff.

The judge said he had tried to accommodate DMX’s tour schedule, but that the rapper had still failed a drug test, left a treatment program and failed to travel with a drug counselor as he’d pledged to do.

“He in effect said, ‘Judge, trust me.’ I will have a drug counselor,” Rakoff said. “That was a great big lie … He said, in effect, ‘screw you.'”

DMX, 47, took two puffs of an asthma inhaler, removed his shoelaces and emptied his pockets of a wad of cash and other papers. Then U.S. Marshals took him into custody sporting a white t-shirt with a smiley face and peace sign.
