    DMX was booked on aggravated assault charges Wednesday.

    Jailed rapper DMX now is facing additional charges after he allegedly threw a tray of food at a Maricopa County detention officer.

    DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was booked on aggravated assault charges Wednesday, according to County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    The 38-year-old rapper already is serving a 90-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to felony charges of theft, drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty on Dec. 30.

    Arpaio says Simmons became upset Sunday after being told he could not have a meal he took from a serving tray. Arpaio says Simmons then threw the tray and its contents at an officer, who wasn't injured.

    Simmons has been on a bread and water diet as punishment for an earlier jail violation.

    A message left with Simmons' attorney was not immediately returned.
