Rapper DMX Released From Jail After Serving 90 Days; Still Faces Another Charge


Earl Simmons, better known as Rapper DMX, left the Maricopa County Jail after serving 90 days on theft and animal cruelty charges. He could be back soon.

While in jail, DMX allegedly assaulted a guard, resulting in another criminal charge. Though the sentence on those charges has been fulfilled, DMX still had to post a $10,000 bond for the alleged assault. He's scheduled for a May 19 pre-trial hearing on that charge, court records show.

DMX supposedly wants to start a Christian TV show. At least he's got no plans to start a dog-training company.
