DMX Gets Early Release From Jail

Published August 13, 2010

The dog's out. Just 18 days after turning himself in to serve a 90-day sentence for a reckless driving charge stemming from 2002, DMX has been released.

Before surrendering to authorities, X shared that he wanted to take "steps toward regaining everything I've lost."

X's manager told TMZ the rapper is "focused" on handling his previous legal issues so he can put his troubled past behind him. He recently finished serving a four-month jail stint for probation violation in Arizona. He was released on July 6.

Simmons received probation for assaulting an officer with a food tray while serving time for theft, drug and animal abuse charges last year.
