Rapper arrested in Miami yesterday afternoon (June 23) on a warrant for having no valid driver's license.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Institute, where a spokeswoman said he remained behind bars at about 5:30 p.m. His bond was set at $500.

DMX has had a number of scuffles with the law in recent years, most recently last month in Arizona, where he pleaded not guilty to felony drug possession and misdemeanor animal cruelty charges.

A message left with a New York attorney who has represented DMX was not immediately returned.
