Jim Jones Arrested for Driving With Suspended License

Jim Jones

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.
