Rapper DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina.

A spokeswoman for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport said police arrested the 42-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just after 5pm on November 4.

Rosylin Weston said officers familiar with Simmons' previous arrests for driving with a suspended licence arrested him after seeing him behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Jail records show Simmons was booked on charges of driving under suspension, having an uninsured vehicle and not having a licensed vehicle. Court records list no attorney for him, and Simmons' spokesman did not immediately return a message.

This is Simmons' fourth arrest in South Carolina this year. His other charges this year include driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.
