Connecticut state police have arrested rapper Jim Jones following a fight at Foxwoods Resort Casino.
State police spokesman J. Paul Vance says the hip-hop artist and actor was charged with assault on a police officer and breach of peace. He was released after posting a 40 thousand dollar bond. He later tweeted that he had missed his flight to Orlando due to his arrest and there was only one option on getting to the NBA All Star city. Sounds that will be a long road trip from Connecticut (buckle up).
Vance said Saturday that Jones assaulted a trooper during the fight. He said he was not certain how the altercation started Friday night.
The 35-year-old rapper, born Joseph Jones, is one of the Diplomats, a Harlem-based rap crew. His “We Fly High” was one of 2007’s top-selling rap tracks. Hopefully the Harlem born rapper has a good defense like he didn’t know he was a cop?!
