Recently a judge ordered currently incarcerated rapper, DMX, to pay $240,000 in damages to a man he assaulted in JFK airport.
Port Authority officers arrested DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, for posing as an FBI agent and using a fake police siren to pull over Sergei Priporin and his family at the airport.
Simmons claimed he pulled them over because he was making them late for his flight. He was in possession of Oxycodone, Diazepam, crack, and a billy club at the time of his arrest.
Richard Corde, X's lawyer, told the website TMZ, "Mr. Simmons still feels justified in pulling them over when they didn't get out of his way... he's not apologizing for that. The gentleman driving should have gotten out of his way."
At this time X is serving a 90-day jail sentence for drug possession, theft, and animal cruelty.
