Rapper Jim Jones Arrested By Police After Fight At Casino

27 Feb

Jim Jones was involved in a fight outside of a Connecticut casino that ended when police intervened and arrested The Capo. Apparently five officers weren’t enough to intimidate Jones who allegedly resisted arrest until police subdued the rapper with pepper spray.

Jim Jones was on his way out from a party hosted by Diddy at the MGM Grand in Foxwoods when a man, who remains unnamed, approached the rapper. The man, who may have been intoxicated, wasn’t a fan of Jones and apparently began harassing him, and the rapper managed to ignore the individual until the man became violent and clocked Jim Jones in the face.

Jones claims he was only trying to protect himself when he responded to the attack in kind, and the scuffle soon turned into a brawl after the crews of the two men entered the fray. Police soon arrived on the scene and attempted to put down the fight, but found the fight had grown out of control and say they had to use force to subdue those involved.

Jim Jones was among those arrested and the rapper was later released on bond. The rapper has yet to comment on the event but, according to TMZ, police charged him with disturbing the police. Whether or not the individual who allegedly initiated the scuffle was charged remains to be seen.

Jim Jones the rapper featured on the VH1 series Love & Hip Hop, who was arrested in NYC for driving his 2011 Bentley on a suspended license earlier this year, pleaded guilty,  according to Perez Hilton!

Rapper Jim Jones (real name Joseph Jones) at Manhattan Criminal Court this afternoon where he answered a desk appearance ticket for his March 30th arrest for driving with a suspended license.

In March, Jones arrested after being stopped by police on his way to a video shoot for “Everybody Jones,” a single off his 2011 album, CAPO. It was while he was en route that he was snagged by the police. Fortunately for him, the judge issued a desk appearance ticket and released him immediately.

His lawyer, Marianne Bertuna, said Jones didn’t know his license was invalid because he must have missed the notices that he needed to pay a penalty, the NY Daily News reported.

Prosecutors had been seeking to have Jones pay a $500 fine and up to 30 days in jail. As part of his plea deal, Jimmy had to cough up $280– a 200 fine and $80 in court costs, pleading guilty to misdemeanor.
