Dipset's Jim Jones has reportedly agreed to a deal with prosecutors to keep avoid jail and only have to cough up a few bucks for his involvement in a publicized casino brawl last winter.
Details of Capo's agreement and fine turned into public knowledge Tuesday (October 2) evening.
Rapper Jim Jones just struck a sweet deal with prosecutors -- getting off with a measly fine today after raising hell in a massive casino brawl back in February, TMZ has learned. Jones was originally hit with three misdemeanor charges following his involvement in the Foxwoods brawl -- breach of peace, interfering with an officer, and inciting a riot. He pled "not guilty" to all three. But today, Jones changed his plea to guilty for the interfering with an officer charge after prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining charges. Jones was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine. The case is now closed. (TMZ)
The case dates back to late February when Jones allegedly struck a Connecticut law enforcement authority.
