Arizona police chiefs have reportedly offered a $5,000 (GBP3,425) reward for information leading to the arrest of rapper DMX.
The star - real name Earl Simmons - was scheduled to appear at an Arizona court to face charges of drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty on Friday (05Dec08).
But after missing the hearing, the court issued a bench warrant for his arrest and ordered the star to hand over a $120,000 (GBP82,107) cash bond to avoid time in jail.
And now the Maricopa County Sheriff's office has offered a $5,000 (GBP3,425) reward to track down the rapper, according to
A lawyer for DMX has claimed the rapper is currently in rehab at an undisclosed location.
A bench warrant was also issued on the rapper in September (08) when he missed a previous appearance at an Arizona court after being hospitalised for symptoms reportedly associated with a stroke. He later appeared for a short hearing.
