DMX was arrested last night in South Carolina last night during a traffic stop because cops claim they found pot.

The event, which was caught on tape by TMZ, occurred when cops pulled over the car X was riding in for making an illegal U-turn.

During the stop, cops discovered X had a warrant out for driving without a license and claim they found weed in the car.  They cuffed him while he shouted, "Eighteen cops, five cars, get the f**k outta here man." He also claims the car should never have been pulled over in the first place, before having what looks to be an asthma attack, which brought the paramedics.

This is not the first time X has been arrested for weed. According to cops, he will be sentenced this morning to 15 days in the county jail.

Update: DMX has been released from jail, but it under house arrest.
