We have to add South Carolina to the states that DMX can’t seem to stay out of trouble in.

Monday night, DMX ended his streak of 25 days without an arrest as he was pulled over by troopers in South Carolina after riding passenger in a Ford pickup that made an illegal turn. According to TMZ the story goes as folows — truck gets pulled over, cops say they found weed in the vehicle and X gets taken to jail on an outstanding warrant for drunk driving, right? Wrong because like most things with DMX, things aren’t always as they appear.

In the video below X begins shouting about being set up by the cops, saying “this ain’t no normal traffic stop, 18 cops, 5 cars? Get the f**k out of here man.” Paramedics were called to the scene after X suffered an asthma attack, brought on we presume by all of his yelling. According to X, his publicist and his two passengers Shawn Roberts & Shawn Dunham — they were never shown the weed the cops supposedly found inside the vehicle.

“DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night. Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X. No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina.”

Sigh, he was released this morning and could be booked in jail for 15 days and probably released in 10 on good behavior.
