The rapper got into a mass brawl involving a drunk guy's friends and his own entourage.
A mass fight broke at P. Diddy's platinum party to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The event started on Friday, February 24 night but slightly after 2 A.M. the next morning, things got out of hand at the foyer of the MGM Grand casino and five people were arrested including rapper Jim Jones.
Although Jones was arrested, he reportedly was not at fault. TMZ's sources said that an intoxicated guy came up to him and started talking smack to him. Jones tried to ignore him but the man got physical and the rapper threw punches back in self-defense. The man's friends jumped in and so did Jones' entourage.
Police arrived to break the brawl but one officer got injured instead. State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said that Jones was arrested because he resisted an arrest for an alleged assault on an officer and breach of peace. The other four people are facing multiple charges as well including inciting a riot.
Jones has posted a bail, which reportedly was set at $40,000. He tweeted, "This is gettin blown way out of proportion."
