DMX was arrested in South Carolina last night — but immediately called BS on the cops — screaming out allegations that he was set up … and it was all caught on tape.
According to DMX, the cops pulled over a car he was riding in for making an illegal U-turn. During the stop, cops say they found weed in the car and put the rapper in “cuffs. Cops say they also noticed a warrant out for DMX stemming from a previous driving without a license case and informed him that he needed to go to jail.
X was pissed and began ranting about the situation while a female friend of his recorded the entire incident.
“This ain”t no normal traffic stop,” X screamed … “18 cops, 5 cars, get the f**k outta here man.”
X also claims the driver did nothing wrong — and the car should never have been pulled over in the first place.
“It was legal … they got nothing.”
At one point, you can hear X say, “I”m sweatin” like a motherf**ker, yo.”
X was eventually hauled to jail in Greer County, SC — and he”s scheduled to face a judge sometime this morning.
Law enforcement sources say … X is expected to be sentenced to 15 days behind bars … but will most likely only have to serve 10, if he”s a good boy.
During the arrest, X suffered what is believed to be a slight asthma attack … and paramedics responded to the scene to treat the rapper. Don”t worry, he”s fine now.
