The rapper was on his way to Radio City Musical Hall, where he was set to perform as part of the Masters of Ceremony concert, when he was taken into custody.
According to a spokesman for the New York County Sheriff's Office, DMX was arrested "for several issues outstanding," including $400,000 in unpaid child support, bail jumping, being an aggravated unlicensed motor vehicle operator and an unspecified criminal complaint.
This is far from the first arrest for DMX. He has been charged in the past with animal cruelty, reckless driving, drug possession and probation violations, and he is currently a suspect in a gas station robbery. In 2013, Dr. Phil told the rapper that he's been arrested 25 times since 1994.
However, fans who had paid to see DMX perform on Friday were none too pleased with the timing of his arrest.
