On Monday January 5, 2009 Dipset Capo Jim Jones appeared at the 18th Precinct in New York City to speak to the police about an alleged physical altercation that took place on Christmas Eve. Jones has since been slapped with a misdemeanor assault charge and a court appearance has been scheduled for February 4th.

As's Gyant Scoop blog previously reported early rumors said Jim Jones got into an altercation with the brother of Ty-Ty Smith, a long-time Jay-Z associate. Jones has had a very public beef with Jay-Z.

"There's been word of a 'beef' that went too far between Ne-Yo, Jim Jones and Jay-Z's right hand man Ty-Ty's brother Vaughn. According to various gossip sources, Go-Go and Jimmy got into a tussle at the Louis Vuitton store on 5th Ave in NYC.

"While the details are sketchy, my people tell me that a lot of the stories being posted are 'grossly exaggerated.' Apparently Ne-Yo and Ty-Ty's brother were shopping in the store when J. Jones approached the guys and started going off on Vaughn, who just so happens to bare a striking resemblance to his brother Ty-Ty."

Last week Jones declined MTV's request for a comment about rumors.

"I don't wanna talk about that," Jones told MTV News refusing to comment on the incident. "Nah, we not doing that, let's stop that right there. Let's not do that. We above that."

According to AllHipHop Jim did agree to answer the questions of NYPD investigators:

"Jones surrendered to the NYPD in accordance with arrangements made by attorney Scott Leemon last week, Leemon told AllHipHop."

"While details of the incident remain unclear, the information provided by Jones was enough to warrant a charge and a summons for a desk appearance. He is scheduled to appear in court on February 4. Jones was released without bail immediately after making his statement, Leemon told AllHipHop."
