One day after the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office in Arizona offered a $5,000 reward for his capture, DMX was apprehended in Florida on Tuesday (December 9) on an arrest warrant issued in Phoenix after he failed to show for a scheduled appearance.

According to a report from MTV, the rapper (real name: Earl Simmons) was picked up by FBI agents after patient-confidentiality laws prevented Miami police from confirming whether X was at a local rehab facility.

“A call went out earlier this morning in regards to his location, and the regular police went out to that location, which was a recovery clinic, but because of health care laws, the clinic wouldn’t confirm whether he was there,” X’s attorney Bradford Cohen told MTV. “So the cops left, and apparently the sheriff down here didn’t like that too much, so he called in the feds.”

The rapper was taken into custody at the Miami mansion of producer Scott Storch. TMZ reports that an unidentified woman tipped off the police after hearing about the reward.

At press time, whether or not Storch was at home at the time of the arrest is unclear.

DMX is currently being held in jail until he goes before a judge in Miami on Wednesday morning (December 10).

His attorney told MTV that he expects that the Miami judge will not grant the rapper bond, and he will probably be extradited to Arizona within 15 days.
