[artist id="1796387"]Jim Jones[/artist] was arrested in New York on Wednesday (March 30) for driving with a suspended license, according to TMZ.
An official for the New York Police Department could not confirm any details “yet,” he told MTV News when contacted about the Diplomats rapper’s arrest.
A rep for the Harlem artist confirmed that Jones was still in custody as of press time and had not been charged. The rep told MTV News that Jones would be out “in an hour.”
Late last year, Jones pleaded guilty to an assault charge stemming from another traffic incident, when he attacked another driver. He was sentenced to anger-management classes. Currently, Jones is promoting his next solo effort, Capo, due next month.
Jones and the rest of the Dipset crew are still negotiating a deal for the collective to put out their next album on Interscope Records. Cam’ron, Juelz Santana and Jones have already been in the studio with Dr. Dre , who is signed to Interscope.
Jones talked about working with the legendary producer, calling the experience “incredible.”
“Dr. Dre came to our studio, which was even more incredible. That was dope. We got to do a few songs with him. He coached me a bit,” Jones told MTV News last year. “Jimmy Iovine gave us the link to him. That’s a good man.”
