Why Was DMX Going Over The Maximum MPH?

DMX has been having lots of problems with the law lately, particularly when it comes to what is and what isn’t a moving violation. He’s had so many issues with that subset of the penal code, in fact, that his license has been suspended! Which makes the fact that he was driving “over 114 miles per hour” in Arizona a few months back a bit sticky.

On January 21, the actor/rapper was photographed driving his 1966 Chevy Nova II on the Loop 101 at a speed of 100 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone.

Just a minute later, DMX, born Earl Simmons, was photographed at another camera moving at a speed of over 114 miles per hour.

Three minutes later, DMX was caught on camera driving at a speed of 101 miler per hour.

Police arrested DMX at his home in Cave Creek and charged the rapper with racing on a highway, reckless driving, two counts of endangerment, three counts of criminal speed and driving with a suspended license.

I guess at that speed, the “but I really had to pee” excuse doesn’t work. But who really needs to drive 114? Is DMX’s car tricked up with a flux capacitor or something?
