PHOENIX (AP) - Rapper Earl Simmons, otherwise known as DMX, is headed to a court hearing Wednesday morning in Phoenix.

The Maricopa County Superior Court says Simmons is due to appear for a probation revocation arraignment before a court commissioner.

Court documents released Friday allege the 39-year-old performer used cocaine and OxyContin, failed to submit to drug testing, and drove on a suspended license.

Simmons was arrested last Thursday by Maricopa County probation officers and was being held without bond in the county jail.

His attorney, Glenn Allen, said he had been working with his client and probation officials and expected the arrest.
