DMX arrested for identity theft

By: The Superficial / July 20, 2008

DMX must love getting arrested. He was picked up Saturday at a Phoenix mall on suspicion that he gave a hospital a fake name and social to duck paying for his visit, according to the AP:

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said that when DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, went to Scottsdale’s Mayo Clinic in April, he used the name “Troy Jones” and failed to pay a $7,500 bill.

DMX finally cashes in the “Ha ha, nobody knows my real name” and wins a pot full of FAIL. And the worst part is, he wasted it on a seven grand hospital bill. Way to shoot for the stars, big guy. You could’ve at least hustled yourself a helicopter. Or, if you’re the practical type, a swimming pool shaped like a robot: “BEEP BOO BOP I’m full of water.”
