Jim Jones Arrested, Then Released In New York For Traffic Violation
Although Jim Jones boasts about having a “Perfect Day” on the lead single for his new album Capo, Wednesday (March 30) wasn’t exactly true to that title.
Jones (real name: James Warren Jones) was released from the 1st Precinct station house in New York late Wednesday after he was taken into custody for driving on a suspended license.
After the arrest, the rapper told the New York Daily News treated him with “total respect” and called the officers “gentleman.”
“I’m just an entertainer trying to make a living,” Jones told the paper upon his release. “They showed me total respect. Every officer in there is a gentleman.”
Jones hopped on Twitter immediately after his release, reporting that he was heading from the station straight to a video shoot for his new song, “Everybody Jones,” and then to the airport for a flight to Chicago.
“From th pens to th video shoot to th air port chitown here we come,” Jones wrote (@JimJonesCapo). “Wht I miss when I was gone lol.”
