The law came calling for DMX after all.

The beleaguered rapper is in police custody in Phoenix after being extradited yesterday from Miami, where he pleaded guilty two weeks ago to attempted marijuana and cocaine possession stemming from his June 27 arrest during a police drug sting.

He was sentenced to time served and fined $483.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials had 15 business days to come and get him, or else DMX would have been allowed to leave Florida on his own recognizance, according to the Cradle 2 the Grave star's attorney.

But because Arizona—where he's facing 11 counts of animal cruelty and drug possession in connection with two raids on his Phoenix-area home—reclaimed him Wednesday on an outstanding warrant for missing a court date, DMX now must post bail in the amount of $25,000 before he's released.
