PHOENIX (AP) - The rapper known as DMX has been arrested for speeding in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Carrick Cook told The Associated Press that the 40-year-old rapper was arrested Wednesday night and bonded out of jail Thursday morning. His real name is Earl Simmons.

The highway patrol pulled Simmons on a highway in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa after he was clocked on radar driving at 102 mph.

Simmons was cited for criminal speed, driving on a suspended and revoked license and reckless driving.

He was released from an Arizona state prison last month after his probation was revoked for failing to submit to drug testing and driving on a suspended license.
