Rapper DMX arrested for driving

US rapper DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina.

A spokeswoman for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says police arrested the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just after 5pm Monday.

She said officers familiar with Simmons' previous arrests for driving with a suspended licence arrested him after seeing him behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Records show Simmons was arrested on charges of driving under suspension, having an uninsured vehicle and not having a licensed vehicle. Court records list no attorney for him, and Simmons' spokesman did not immediately return a message.

This is Simmons' fourth arrest in South Carolina this year. His other charges this year include several charges of driving under the influence and simple possession of marijuana.
