DMX has been arrested again in South Carolina -- his fourth arrest in the state this year.

A spokeswoman for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says airport police arrested the rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, just after 5 p.m. on Monday.

Rosylin Weston says officers familiar with the 42-year-old's previous arrests for driving with a suspended license arrested him after seeing him behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Jail records show Simmons was booked on charges of driving under suspension, having an uninsured vehicle and not having a licensed vehicle. Court records list no attorney for him, and Simmons' spokesman didn't immediately return a message.

Simmons' other charges this year include several charges of driving under the influence and simple possession of marijuana.
