DMX Fails Four Drug Tests, Placed on House Arrest

Rapper DMX ordered confined to home on tax fraud charges

Judge Jed Rakoff noted he violated two conditions: He has tested positive for drugs since his arrest, in addition to traveling twice without obtaining permission from authorities.

DMX, whose given name is Earl Simmons, hugged friends outside the courtroom and called it a "blessing" that he was free as he walked away from the courthouse to a hot dog stand, where he ate a hot dog and posed for pictures. "He went to St. Louis without getting permission from the pretrial services officer", DMX's lawyer Murray Richman tells Billboard.

Although the judge was not pleased with him and had the ability to put DMX back in jail, they chose to put him on house arrest, as he will have to wear an ankle monitor for the rest of his case.

"He does have a rap sheet that does suggest more than a passing acquaintance with illegal drugs and more than a passing acquaintance with hand guns", Rakoff reportedly said.

The judge could easily have thrown the rapper in jail, but showed him mercy by putting him on house arrest.

If you recall, the veteran MC is facing 14 counts of evading more than $1 million in federal taxes.

His songs include the 2003 hit "X Gon' Give it to Ya". He has pleaded not guilty and declined to comment on the charges outside court Friday.
