Jim Jones was arrested in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, where he resides. The rapper was charged with disorderly conduct and hindering apprehension by the Fair Lawn Police Department, according to NorthJersey.com. The incident reportedly occurred on February 13, 2013, when Jones was questioned about a vehicle on Ward Street, Fair Lawn.
The police report states that Sergeant James Corcoran noticed a car parked on the street with a parking summons on the windshield. The summons had been issued on February 6 but the car had not been moved since February 8, when there had been a snowstorm. The police officer was in the process of getting car towed, as he considered it to have been abandoned. Jones approached Corcoran to ask what he was doing. After an explanation, Jones agreed to remove the vehicle from the street and pay the towing fee. In the process of talking to Jim Jones, the police officer discovered that he had two outstanding warrants to his name; one for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle in 2010 ($150) and one for failing to remove snow from the sidewalk from the municipal court in 2011 ($43).
When the previous warrants were brought up, ones reportedly became belligerent and uncooperative and gave the police false information. The CEO of Diplomat Records then attempted to walk away as they placed him under arrest. He will appear in court on February 27 to answer charges of disorderly conduct and obstruction.
