It's Dark & Jail Is Cold: A Retrospective Look At DMX's Arrests
It was this arrest in June 2004 that gained the New York rapper notoriety for his troubles with the law. At the John F. Kennedy International Airport, DMX was charged with cocaine possession, criminal impersonation (something he's done before!), criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, menacing, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The kicker came when word broke that he claimed to be a FBI agent. X was given a conditional discharge on December 2004, but pled guilty on October 25, 2005, to violating parole.
