musicNEWS: DMX Charged With Child Endangerment, Impersonating an FBI Agent, Drugs and more
According to police Simmons was driving his 1998 Ford Expedition in an airport parking lot when he claims that he was cut off by an another vehicle and he activated police like lights and sirens on his SUV. The driver of the other vehicle was searching for a parking spot, and had his 13-year-old daughter in the car. He stopped his vehicle and DMX got out of his SUV and reportedly ordered the man from his car. But the driver refused and at that point Simmons reportedly told the man he was an FBI agent, opened the carís door and grabbed the driverís seat belt and attempted to pull him from the vehicle.
Simmons was unable to unfasten the seatbelt and then allegedly jumped back in his vehicle to make a run for it. He then crashed his Expedition through the airport parking lot exit gate. Simmons reportedly yelled at the attendant "Let us out. We're federal agents," and when the attendant refused, Simmons drove his vehicle through the gate.
At approximately 8:10 PM, Simmons and Hudgins were arrested by Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officers. Police reportedly found rock cocaine and a billy club in the vehicle. Both men were charged with weapon and drug possession. Associated Press reports that Simmons faces additional charges of criminal impersonation, criminal mischief, menacing, reckless endangerment, driving under the influence, and endangering the welfare of a child.
