Rapper and reality star Jim Jones (pictured) was arrested for a second time on Monday for driving with a suspended license, reports TMZ. This latest arrest comes on the heels of another brush with the law, when the renegade rapper reportedly incited a brawl (see video below) last Friday at the famed Foxwoods Resorts Casino in Connecticut.
According to Jones, 35, he was sitting in the passenger seat of his late model black Audi in Harlem, when New York’s Finest told him to move. After the MC reportedly did what he was told, police pulled him over as soon as he moved the vehicle. Once officers checked Jones’ license, they informed him that it had been suspended and arrested him. While Jones claims that the police were respectful this go-round, that wasn’t the case in his earlier arrest.
Last Friday, Jones was partying at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, when a man allegedly began talking trash. Initially, Jones reportedly kept a cool head, but when the assailant, who was said to be tipsy, threw the first blow, Jones reportedly retaliated. Jones’ entourage allegedly joined in the melee along with the trash talker’s friends. According to TMZ, it took five police officers and a shot of mace to pacify Jones.
Jones was charged with assault of a police officer and breach of peace and then released on bond. Jones was reportedly returning home to New Jersey, when he was then arrested in Harlem.
Chrissy-take-no-mess Lampkin, Jones’ fiance and “Love & Hip-Hop” reality show co-star, is certainly not going to be happy about her man’s latest criminal escapades!
