VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Rapper, Jim Jones, Arrested

Jim Jones, dipset rapper and star of VH1’s “Love & Hip-Hop,” was arrested in New York’s SoHo district March 30 after police pulled him over for driving with a suspended license.

According to nydailynews.com, Jones was pulled over after police caught him driving his 2011 black Bentley in the bus lane on Broadway, after which police discovered that Jones’ license was suspended for failure to pay several tickets and he was arrested on the spot.

A source claims one of the arresting officers told Jones that, “I don’t care how many records you sell, you gotta pay your tickets.”

Later in the day, Jones’ attorney announced that the rapper had been released from custody and was given a desk appearance ticket.

Despite the arrest and the alleged snarky comment from police officers, Jones is claiming that New York City Police were very respectful and treated him with care throughout the entire process.

I’m just an entertainer trying to make a living,” said Jones. “They showed me total respect. Every officer in there is a gentleman.”

With his arrest behind him, Jones can now focus on the release of his fifth album, Capo, which hits stores on April 5.

    Jim Jones looks like he needs a shower & to brush his teeth..he’s whack..what real dude needs to lay rubber band money on his stomach bc the camera is around. As far as his girl, she’s a hater,she started with that other girl Somaya at the club just bc she blows her ugly ass out the water. I mean really,who does that.?.walk up & stopping to look her up & down..ridiculous but I see she clamed down once she saw she had no issue confronting her. Dude was right,Somaya would punish that b!tch bc she’s a talker & the ones you need to watch are the ones that act like a lady until pushed to the limit. I can’t wait to see her put in her place bc there’s nothing worse than a hoodrat living in the burbs. Lmao
