(TMZ) - DMX was arrested in South Carolina last night - but immediately called BS on the cops - screaming out allegations that he was set up ... and it was all caught on tape, and TMZ has the details.
TMZ reports, according to DMX, the cops pulled over a car he was riding in for making an illegal U-turn. During the stop, cops say they found weed in the car and put the rapper in 'cuffs. Cops say they also noticed a warrant out for DMX stemming from a previous driving without a license case and informed him that he needed to go to jail.
According to TMZ, X was pissed and began ranting about the situation while a female friend of his recorded the entire incident.
"This ain't no normal traffic stop," X screamed ... "18 cops, 5 cars, get the f**k outta here man."
X also claims the driver did nothing wrong - and the car should never have been pulled over in the first place.
"It was legal ... they got nothing."
At one point, you can hear X say, "I'm sweatin' like a motherf**ker, yo."
X was eventually hauled to jail in Greer County, SC - and he's scheduled to face a judge sometime this morning.
According to TMZ, Law enforcement sources say that X is expected to be sentenced to 15 days behind bars, but will most likely only have to serve 10, if he's a good boy.
During the arrest, X suffered what is believed to be a slight asthma attack ... and paramedics responded to the scene to treat the rapper. Don't worry, he's fine now.
