DMX Pleads Guilty To DUI And Reckless Endangerment

Rapper gets conditional discharge, has license suspended for six months.

DMX pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and reckless endangerment in a criminal court in Queens, New York, on Wednesday.

X, born Earl Simmons, was sentenced to a conditional discharge and had his license suspended for six months. He also paid a $1,000 fine and was told to turn over his 1998 Ford Expedition SUV.

The charges stem from a June 24 incident at Kennedy International Airport in which the rapper and another man, Jackie Hudgins, were allegedly caught while attempting to steal a car (see "DMX Faces Drug, Weapons Charges After Airport Incident"). X was ordered to surrender his SUV because the vehicle has a police siren, and during the incident, X allegedly claimed that he was an FBI agent.

Neither representatives for X nor Murray Richman, his defense attorney, could not be reached for comment on Wednesday (December 8).
