Rapper DMX's Thursday afternoon (14Aug08) shopping trip in Miami, Florida was ruined by police, who showed up to arrest him.
The rap star, real name Earl Simmons, was handcuffed as he left a Wal-Mart store.
A warrant for DMX's arrest was issued after he missed a court date on Tuesday (12Aug08) stemming from drug charges in Arizona.
His lawyer, Charles Kozelka, tells TMZ.com he was in the process of working out a self-surrender when police spotted the rapper shopping.
Thursday's incident is the troubled rapper's sixth arrest of the year.
