Dipset rapper Jim Jones reportedly experienced a slight case of deja vu after getting arrested in New York City, 72 hours after getting placed in police custody for a Connecticut casino brawl.
While reports are still emerging, Jones was arrested sometime Monday (February 27) in his hometown.
Just three days after Jim Jones was arrested for assault on a police officer following a casino brawl in Connecticut, the rapper was arrested AGAIN -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ. According to law enforcement sources, Jim was pulled over earlier today in New York City -- and subsequently arrested for driving on a suspended license. Jones has since been released. (TMZ)
Last year, Jones reportedly got a personal driver after losing his license.
You'd think Jim Jones would suck it up and buy a Metro Card after losing his license earlier this year -- but no ... the rapper plunked down for a chauffeur. Jones pled guilty to driving on a suspended license after his arrest in March -- but Jones tells TMZ, it's no big deal ... because now his driver takes him everywhere he needs to go ... guy even drives Jim's kid to school. The "Love & Hip Hop" star says the cost of hiring the driver is worth it because he doesn't want to end up in jail for another driving violation -- and he feels he's too famous in NYC to take public transportation.
