Rap star Jim Jones, arrested in New Jersey, faces charges of disorderly conduct and hindering apprehension. According to Yahoo News on Feb. 14, police arrested Jones after he became belligerent with the police in his home town.
The entire incident began when the police questioned Jim Jones about a ticketed vehicle they were in the process of having towed. Jones agreed to pay the fines for the ticket, but when police began to grill him about prior warrants, he became aggressive.
The prior warrants were for failing to shovel a sidewalk and for failure to yield for an emergency vehicle. The police say that, at that moment, Jones "got out of line." Jones denied the prior warrants and when he got a little too aggressive, the police arrested him for disorderly conduct.
Jones, 37, is a member of the Diplomats, a New York based rap group and was one of 2007's best selling artists with the song "We Fly High."
Jim Jones was booked and released and his court date is Feb. 27.
