After DMX‘s arrest Tuesday night (August 20) during a traffic stop — the rapper was ultimately cited for weed and brought to a South Carolina jail to deal with a past warrant — he is now sharing his side of the story.

According to the ‘Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood’ creator’s publicist, Dominick Nati, he was driving in a vehicle with his two assistants, Shawn Durham and Shawn Rhodes. Nati has released a statement, which details what happened when the car was pulled over by South Carolina law enforcement and thereafter.

“DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night, Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X,” the statement reads. “No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina.”

The report by TMZ of his arrest and accompanying video shows that X was extremely anger and claims he was set up.
