Jim Jones Arrested In New Jersey For Disorderly Conduct


No one ever said the Vampire Life didn’t involve friction with the police. Jim Jones was arrested in front his home in New Jersey today for disorderly conduct, HipHop DX reports.

Jones was taken into custody in Fair Lawn after he allegedly “got out of line” with an officer who was addressing a parking complaint, stemming from the Diplomat front man’s illegally parked snow mobile.  Sgt. James Corcoran was in the process of dealing with the complaint, when Jones approached asking what he was doing.

After running the Harlem native’s name through the system, he found two outstanding warrants and requested to take him to the police station to pay the fines. Jones refused, denying that he had any tickets, which ultimately  led to his arrest. He was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice. “If [people with oustanding warrants] agree, we’ll just have them come down and pay what they owe,” said   Lt. Derek Bastinck of the Fair Lawn Police Department. “If they don’t agree, they’re placed under arrest.”

Bastinck says they’ve never had a problem with celebrities, but Jones is no stranger to being arrested. Last year he was taken into custody for driving on a suspended license, one of three times he was arrested that week.

    America is becoming a police state and the police are being militarily trained to take out and down anyone who disagrees with or talks back to them. Jim is obviously a slow learner because this has been happening to black men for decades and now it is happening to everyone from coast-to-coast so this is now a double whammy for Jim. And not only that in the old days a warrant was served by a couple of plain clothes cops and today they send out 30-40 SWAT, CIA ,Homeland Security and DEA agents to serve a warrant and they will run everyone who attempts to show up on their scene or who accidentally is in the wrong place at the wrong time. They will take them all to jail if they have warrants even for traffic tickets if they will not go pay them immediately.

    Jim Jones is an idiot and is lucky to come away and alive. It is a new world order ppl and things with the cops have changed for all of us.
