Dipset rapper Jim Jones, 37, has been arrested for driving under the influence in the Bronx. He was arrested early this morning for speeding and was allegedly high.
TMZ reported that according to law enforcement officer, NYPD pulled the rapper over around 2 a.m. for speeding on the highway. When officers approached his Chevy Impala, they noticed that his eyes were bloodshot. They immediately put Jones through some sobriety tests and he failed miserably.
According to WABC, the rapper, whose real name is Joseph Jones, was charged with operating a motor vehicle impaired by drugs and refusing to take a breathalyzer. Luckily for him, no drugs were found in the car.
The NY DailyNews reports that police claimed that Jones reeked of pot when he was pulled over for speeding in his Chevy Impala on the Sheridan Expressway in the Bronx at 1:45 a,m.
This is not the first time Jones has had issues with the law while driving. Last year, Jones was arrested twice in three days for driving with a suspended license.
HotNewHipHop notes that the last time Jones had a run-in with the police, he said he was a victim of racial profiling.
Jones has yet to speak on his latest arrest.
