Jim Jones was involved in a dispute with an officer who found outstanding warrants on the rapper, and eventually placed him under arrest.
Capo became vocally upset when Sgt. James Corcoran was handing out a ticket for a car which was apparently illegally parked outside of Jones’ home. Things escalated quickly, and the officer asked for the rapper’s name, and when he entered it into the database it revealed that the Dipset rapper had outstanding warrants.
The warrants stemmed from a N.J. motor vehicle violation, and the other was for simply not removing snow from his sidewalk. According to Lt. Derek Bastinck, the officer asked Jones to go down to the police station with him to settle the fines. The rapper said the citations were not his and refused to go to the station, at which point he was placed under arrest and charged with disorderly conduct.
In a statement Lt. Bastinck said this is standard procedure for those who will not pay head down to headquarters to pay their fines, “"If [people with oustanding warrants] agree, we'll just have them come down and pay what they owe, but if they don't agree, they're placed under arrest."
