It looks like DMX is next to hit the slammer for dog-fighting. The Arizona Sheriff department raided his house this morning and seized 12 dogs from the property.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputies seized 12 pit bulls, which they described as distressed. Guns were also found and seized during the raid of his Cave Creek-area home.
DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not at home when the raid occurred, according to KPNX Channel 12 in Phoenix.
This man has been barking and growling for years and the feds want to step in and investigate all of a sudden. Does the tattoo of his deceased dog on his back account for anything?? Using his dogs to fight?? Naw, we don’t believe it ….
UPDATE: According to DMX’s attorney Murray Richman, it was all about the blazing Arizona heat. Richman claims that someone reported the dogs were at risk because of the extreme temperatures, telling TMZ “Earl has a caretaker, who obviously wasn’t taking care. Earl loves those dogs.” Richman added that DMX isn’t even in Az and hasn’t been there for several months because he’s off working on a project.
