DMX arrested after not showing at hearing

PHOENIX Lawyer Charles Kozelka says DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, checked into a Miami hospital the day he was to appear in Phoenix and was planning on entering a rehab facility afterward.

Kozelka says the warrant stopped those plans, and that he had been trying to arrange for DMX to turn himself in at the airport.

A Phoenix judge issued the warrant for DMX on Tuesday after he didn't appear for a pretrial conference on four counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and one count of possession of marijuana.

The case is one of several Simmons is facing in Phoenix, including several animal cruelty and drug possession counts.
