(CBS/AP) PHOENIX - The rapper known as DMX has been arrested for speeding in the Phoenix metropolitan area only a month after getting out of jail.

The 40-year-old rapper, aka Earl Simmons, was arrested Wednesday night and bonded out of jail Thursday morning, a Department of Public Safety spokesman told the Associated Press.

The highway patrol pulled Simmons over on a highway in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa after he was clocked on a radar driving at 102 mph.

Simmons was cited for criminal speed, driving on a suspended and revoked license along with reckless driving.

He was released from an Arizona state prison last month after his probation was revoked for failing to submit to drug testing and driving on a suspended license.
