Jim Jones Arrested for Drugs & Gun Possession After Police Chase on Georgia Highway

Rapper Jim Jones was arrested in Georgia after leading police on a chase that ended with him getting popped for possession of drugs and a firearm, TMZ reports.

Cops attempted to pull over a grey Mercedes SUV Jim was riding in with three other people in Cowetta County, GA Thursday night (Jun. 21). According to police,  the grey Mercedes SUV was traveling south on I-85 and reportedly drifted into the left-hand emergency lane several times.

Instead of stopping for police, the car accelerated, which sparked a chase, the Sheriff’s Department said. The car eventually stopped after running into a deputy’s vehicle. Jones was NOT driving at the time. The “We Fly High” rapper was simply a passenger in the backseat.

Here’s exactly what happened, per the Newnan Times-Herald:

When Investigator Jeremy Wood with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office pulled up beside the SUV, the interior of the car appeared to be filled with smoke and the smell of marijuana was apparent after Wood rolled down his window, according to Chief Deputy James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

A traffic stop was conducted on the SUV at exit 35, where the driver of the SUV reportedly rolled through the stop sign at the bottom of the exit ramp before pulling over on the side of Hwy 29.

While officers were exiting their vehicle, the driver of the SUV accelerated and led police on a short chase that ended on Griffin Street near Frazier’s, where Wood pulled in front of the SUV to stop it and was intentionally struck by the driver, Yarbrough said.

The occupants of the SUV were then ordered out of the car and to place their hands on the roof.

Jones said he had told the driver of the car, , to pull over, but stated she was acting “incoherent,” according to the report.

After searching the vehicle, deputies found marijuana, 23 Oxycodone pills, Percocets, vape cartridges, THC oil, two loaded pistols and $148 cash, which Jim called “just petty cash.” According to cops, of the two guns they found, one of them was stolen.

Ana Rajnee Miles, Darnell Maurice Wright, and Jamal Rajhun Smith were arrested along with Jim Jones.

Because no one admitted to the possession of any of the items, although Jones said he had a prescription for the Oxy and Percs, everyone was arrested.

Jones, who also reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana but denied that the weed found in the car was his, told the cops that he told the driver—identified as 23-year-old Ana Rajnee Miles—to pull over, but she was acting “incoherent.”

Jim Jones, whose real name is Joseph Guillermo Jones, was charged with three felonies: possession of a stolen gun, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and possession of narcotics. The 41-year-old rapper was also hit with a misdemeanor charge for the prescription pills not being in their original container. He was later released on $7,000 bail.

As for Jones’ friends, Miles was charged with 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.

31-year-old Darnell Maurice Right and 32-year-old Jamal Rajhun Smith, were also charged with narcotics possession, marijuana possession and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Smith was also charged with theft by receiving stolen property.

Kellen Winslow Jr. Arrested on Rape & Kidnapping Charges, Faces Life in Prison

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. has been arrested for the second time in the past seven days, and his latest arrest includes some very serious charges.

According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Winslow was arrested in San Diego Thursday afternoon (Jun. 14) on an outstanding warrant and was hit with a whopping NINE criminal charges, including kidnapping with intent to commit rape, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, burglary, indecent exposure and more. A search warrant was executed at his home, Fox 8 reported.

His total charges are as follows:

  • 2 counts of residential burglary
  • 2 counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape
  • 2 counts of forcible rape
  • 1 count of forcible sodomy
  • 1 count of forcible oral copulation
  • 1 count of indecent exposure

If Winslow ends up being convicted of all charges, he faces up to life in prison.

Last Friday (Jun. 8), Winslow was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary for an alleged incident that reportedly happened at a mobile home park in Encinitas, California.

Winslow said at the time that he was not burglarizing the home in question; he was “house hunting for a home for his mother-in-law,” according to Fox 8. He was held on $50,000 bond, which he posted. He’ll be formally charged during an arraignment on Friday (Jun. 15).

34-year-old Kellen Winslow Jr. played in the NFL between 2004 and 2013. He earned more than $30 million during his 10-year NFL career as a tight end for the Cleveland Browns, the Tamba Bay Bucs, the New England Patriots and the NY Jets.

This isn’t Winslow’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2013 for allegedly masturbating in a Target parking lot after cops say they found vaseline and synthetic marijuana in his car.

Jacquees Arrested in Atlanta for Drug Possession & Driving 116 MPH on the Highway

Jacquees posed for this mugshot early Thursday morning (May 24) after he was arrested in Atlanta after police caught him with drugs and speeding down the highway in his 2007 Bentley Continental.

According to police, the singer was pulled over around 3 a.m. Thursday after an officer clocked him going 116mph on I-85. As he was being pulled over, the officer who initiated the traffic stop witnessed someone in Jacquees’ Bentley tossing drugs out the window. Police said they recovered about three grams of marijuana.

“The vehicle pulled to the shoulder but continued rolling a short distance,” Atlanta police spokesman Officer Lisa Bender told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “While it was rolling, the officer observed an item be thrown out of the passenger window.”

Police said Jacquees (real name: Rodriquez Broadnax) admitted to the arresting officer he tried to get rid of the weed. Jacquees was cuffed and charged with speeding, reckless driving, littering and possession of a controlled substance. His passenger, 23-year-old Satanesha Boutwell, was also arrested on a possession charge.

“A search of the vehicle uncovered more marijuana in possession of the passenger,” Officer Bender said.

Jacquees and his passenger were released from the Atlanta City Detention Center Thursday on signature bonds.

This is the third time Jacquees has been arrested this year alone. Back in March, the singer was arrested in Miami for driving in his Lamborghini without a seatbelt, and he was briefly detained at an airport in Milwaukee a couple weeks ago after he got into an argument with someone, and then allegedly told a police officer he was “just a white boy with a badge.”
