DMX is reportedly in custody in a Phoenix jail on identity theft charges.

As reported earlier, DMX was arrested in Miami on August 14th on a warrant for failing to appear in a Phoenix court for a drug related case.

DMX attempted to bail out from the Miami jail but the Phoenix judge who issued the warrant revoked his bail and the rapper had to face drug charges he had picked up in Miami in June.

DMX would plead guilty to the Miami drug charges two weeks ago as part of a plea deal and was only sentenced to time served.

Phoenix authorities had fifteen days to arrest DMX or he would have been allowed to leave Miami on his own recognizance so the rapper was extradited from Miami to Phoenix on Wednesday (September 11)

According to the Associated Press, DMX is being held on a $25,000 cash bond. The identify theft charges stem from accusations that the rapper used a fake name at a Phoenix hospital to avoid a bill.

DMX also faces animal cruelty charges and drug charges in Phoenix.
