Jim Jones has been arrested after a police chase in west Georgia.
The New York rapper was spotted in a car by a Coweta County investigator. The investigator said he saw a southbound Mercedes sports utility vehicle shift in the emergency lane on Interstate 85 several times.
When the investigator pulled the vehicle over, he stated it appeared to be infused with smoke and have a smell of marijuana.
As police approached the vehicle, the driver accelerated and led them on a short chase. Officers pulled in front of the SUV to bring it to a halt and were hit by the driver, identified as Ana Rajnee Miles.
Jones was among the four individuals inside the car and was arrested Thursday, June 21 on multiple charges.
A Bronx native, Jones is more than just a rapper. He is a reality TV star and a member of the rap group, Dipset. Jones is best known for his record, “We Fly High,” released in 2006. The single reached number five on Billboard’s Hot 100.
According to the police report, Jones stated he told the driver to pull over, but she was acting “incoherent.”
When investigators searched the vehicle, a backpack found in the back seat contained 23 Oxycodone pills; a Titan .25-caliber pistol with seven bullets in the chamber, marijuana, and a Ruger SR 9mm handgun reportedly stolen from DeKalb County in March.
Another backpack contained a variety of Oxycodone, Percocet and THC oil, a passport and over $140 in cash.
Jones admitted to smoking marijuana. However, he claims that the drugs found in the car were not his. The MC also denied knowing that weapons were in the car and told the police that he’s on prescription for pills.
According to police reports, Jones will face charges including stolen property, possession of a firearm, narcotics possession, marijuana possession, and dangerous drugs to be kept in original container.
The driver, Miles, who is 23, faces charges of aggravated assault, fleeing, attempting to elude police, theft by receiving stolen property, narcotics possession, marijuana possession, dangerous drugs to be kept in original container, aggressive driving, and failure to maintain lane.
Darnell Maurice Wright, 31, and Jamal Rajhun Smith, 32 were the other two passengers with Jones and Miles.
They face charges including narcotics possession, marijuana possession and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Smith is also facing theft by receiving stolen property.
Jones was released on a $7,000 bail.
