Embattled rapper Dmx is in trouble with the law again – the hip-hop star was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday on suspicion of parole violation.
The rap star – real name Earl Simmons – has served two stints in prison this year and most recently walked free in August after serving 18 days of a 90-day sentence in connection with a reckless driving conviction from 2002.

Simmons was detained by police in Phoenix on Thursday evening after allegedly violating the terms of his release and failing to check in with his probation officer, according to

The rapper has been ordered to attend a probation revocation hearing on 24 November which could see him jailed for a third time in 2010 if he is deemed to have broken court rules.

Simmons served time in jail in Arizona earlier this year for a previous parole violation charge – he was released in July after four months behind bars.
