DMX arrested again for court no-show

Rapper, jailed in Miami, will be returned to Arizona

MIAMI -- Rapper DMX is back behind bars in Miami after he was arrested by federal authorities for allegedly skipping out on a court appearance.

The 37-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant issued by a Phoenix judge after he was not in court Friday. Attorney Charles Kozelka said the entertainer has been in and out of rehab in Florida for a couple of weeks.

DMX was being held at the Miami-Dade County jail. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty in Arizona.

The rapper will be returned to Phoenix, where bond is set at $120,000.
