Hours after he was escorted to the 1st Precinct in New York City, the 'Baggage Claim' rapper was released and given a desk appearance ticket.
Rapper Jim Jones was arrested in New York City on Wednesday, March 30 after cops accused him of driving on a suspended license. New York Daily News reported that he was initially being pulled over for driving his Bentley in a bus lane before learning about his failure to pay several tickets that led to the suspension of his license.
A source told the publication that a cop told the "We Fly High" rapper, "I don't care how many records you sell, you gotta pay your tickets." After a few hours in the 1st Precinct, he was given a desk appearance ticket and released. His attorney has confirmed to TMZ that the rapper has been released with the ticket.
This is the latest in a string of legal woes for Jones - last year a battery charge was dropped against him relating to an incident with a teenage fan in Florida as a result of insufficient evidence. In the same year, Jones was ordered to take part in anger management classes after pleading guilty to attacking a driver after a car crash in January.
