Earl Simmons, also known as DMX, was arrested early Friday morning by Highway Patrol, according to the Greenville County Detention Center.
The Detention Center said Simmons was picked up on a DUI charge and bonded out of jail just before 4:00 a.m.
Officials said he was charged with DUI and driving without a license, first offense.
The DUI charge is also a first offense and officials said his blood alcohol was less than .10.
Simmons was driving a 1978 Plymouth station wagon at the time of the incident, according to troopers.
This is not Simmons first run in with the law in the Upstate. In February, he was arrested in Spartanburg County and charged with driving without a license.
DMX has been living in the Upstate on and off for the last few years.
