Jones was charged with theft and her bond was set at $1K. This is not the first arrest for Jones, according to police she has nine previous arrests for shoplifting in Shreveport and Bossier City in the past nine years, in addition to other arrests including disturbing the peace, theft, battery and receiving stolen goods.

Shockingly, Jones posted a few comments on Facebook about her infamous video:

Before she turned herself into police Jones posted the following:

“Goodnight to the world to all the negative comments and to all the good comments if I know me u know me and the person I am it s true what I did and it is what it is never did I think it would be this big but it is I apologize to my family.
