Rapper DMX was arrested on multiple outstanding warrants including unpaid child support and jumping bail
On June 26th, rapper DMX was arrested on multiple outstanding warrants. He has been sentenced to six months for failing to pay $400,000 in child support. The rapper has been placed in the Erie County holding center in Buffalo, New York since Tuesday, July 14th, according to the Erie County sheriff’s office.
DMX is no stranger to the criminal justice system; a separate arrest warrant from White Plains, New York cited DMX with bail jumping, a warrant from Yonkers accused the rapper of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and with an additional complaint has named DMX as a suspect in an April 5th robbery of a 21-year-old man at a New Jersey gas station.
Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb was arrested in late June and charged with DUI after hitting another vehicle in Gilbert, Arizona. The Gilbert police gave a statement per Deadspin‘s Tom Ley:
On 06/28/2015 at approximately 2335 hours, officers responded to a non-injury collision involving two vehicles which occurred just west of the intersection at E Chandler Heights Rd and S Higley Rd in Gilbert, AZ. Subsequent investigation revealed Donovan McNabb (11/25/76) was impaired by alcohol and collided in a rear-end fashion with another vehicle which was stopped at a red traffic signal. Donovan was arrested for DUI at 2358 hours and transported to the Gilbert/Chandler Unified Holding Facility for processing, after which, he was cited and released.
The mugshot of McNabb has been released by Phoenix reporter William Pitts.
McNabb, 38, was previously arrested for driving under the influence in December 2013. If convicted of a second offense, McNabb faces at least 90 days in jail, a fine of up to $2,500 and at least 30 hours of community service.

Crenshaw Rapper Nipsey Hussle could not provide prescription for codeine found in a traffic stop
Usually art imitates life, but this week life seems to be imitating art, specifically in the world of Hip Hop as Diddy, Rick Ross and the incarcerated Bobby Shmurda have all had a brush with the law all in one week. Now, Cali superstar Nipsey Hussle has been arrested in Burbank on Wednesday night.
Police stopped the 29-year-old rapper, born Ermias Asghedom, on suspicion of traffic violations at 11:20 p.m., at Ford Street and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank. Officers discovered he had an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license, Burbank police Lt. Adam Cornils said. After Hussle consented to a police search of his car, police found a bottle of codeine along with a cup of ice. Hussle was unable to provide a prescription for the drug and was therefore placed under arrest.
Hussle rose to stardom after his genius marketing strategy of selling a $100 album caught the attention of labels and executives. In 2013, he put 1,000 copies of his album Crenshaw up for sale at $100 each, with the clever hashtag #Proud2Pay. The idea was genius and the album sold out. Jay-Z was impressed with the bold strategy and bought 100 copies of his own. Hussle’s career skyrocketed and he continues to flourish as one of the West Coast’s best rappers out at present.
Nipsey has been released after posting a $1K bond.
Former Star Defensive linemen Warren Sapp has been named in a domestic violence case
TMZ has reported that “Law enforcement … says a report has been filed against Sapp in which the 42-year-old is accused of getting into a physical altercation with a woman in a casino on April 28th.”
Though the report has already been filed against Sapp, the Hall of Fame player has yet to be arrested for the alleged charges, and cops are still investing.
This isn’t the first legal trouble Sapp has dealt with this year. During Super Bowl weekend, he was arrested in Phoenix for soliciting a prostitute, and shortly after, his contract with the NFL Network was officially terminated.

One second Joseph Kent is walking with his hands up protesting, the next second a truck pulls, up cops rush, and Joe’s gone.
“What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
It truly seems across the globe, miscommunication is a big part of all the civil unrest, especially in our country. In the most recent account, Joseph Kent hailing from Baltimore, Maryland disappeared live on CNN during the Freddie Gray riots.
Before we get to that, let’s talk about Joseph Kent. Mr. Kent is a student at Morgan State University and a leader in the modern day activist community. Kent was actively involved in local protests back in November says Rev. Heber Brown III, who is a longtime organizer described Kent as “Martin Luther King with tattoos and gold fronts.”
Back to the story at hand, the reason we are speaking about Joseph Kent today is because he vanished in front of our eyes on live TV! Kent was breaking the law, out well past the 10pm curfew, but peacefully protesting. Cops with riot gear were surrounding Kent when a Humvee pulled up on the scene. That’s when the cops rushed him and pinned him against the SUV and into the back, and out of sight Joe went.
After seeing what went down, local criminal defense attorney Steve Beatty rushed to the Central Booking and Intake Center facility to track Joseph down. It has been confirmed that Kent is still in CBIF awaiting processing.
The Migos—Quavo, Offset and Takeoff–were arrested following a performance at Georgia Southern University on Friday after cops claimed they detected a “very potent smell” of marijuana coming from their vehicles. A subsequent investigation, conducted while the three rappers were performing at the school, produced drugs and firearms, leading to their arrests.
“These discoveries were intensely concerning as the drugs and firearms had been brought to a university sponsored event where over a thousand students were congregated.” Other, yet to be disclosed drugs were also found after a search by authorities.
On Saturday, news broke that the three Migos members would be charged with drug possession; possession of firearms in a school safety zone; and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, all very serious charges. Since then, two of the rappers–Quavo and Takeoff–have been granted a $10,000 bail, but Offset has been denied the opportunity to post bail. He is a convicted felon, and the judge has denied his release.
