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.

XXXTentacion’s Alleged Killer Dedrick Williams Charged With Murder in 1st Court Appearance, Denied Bond

Dedrick D. Williams, the man accused of murdering XXXTentacion, appeared in court Thursday afternoon (Jun. 21) to answer to the charges he’s facing in the rapper’s shooting death.

The video footage from court shows Williams going before the judge at the Broward County Courthouse and he was formally charged with 1 count of first-degree murder and 1 count of grand theft auto.

Apparently, Williams has retained the services of a public defender, who said that there has been no witnesses or testimony in the case, and all the courts had to arrest him was a probable cause affidavit.

But the judge made it clear that based on the court docs, she found probable cause and “proof of guilt to be evident or the presumption great,” so she chose to hold him without bond in regards to the murder charge.

Williams was also hit with a probation violation stemming from a 2014 case and will appear in court Monday (Jun. 25) for that.

As we previously reported, Williams—an 11-time felon—was arrested Wednesday night in South Florida after a police chase (he had also stolen a car, hence the grand theft auto charge). His criminal record includes arrests for cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence, aggravated assault with a firearm and grand theft auto.

Authorities believe there are at least two others involved in XXX’s murder, and according to TMZ, there are two other arrest arrests that have been signed by a judge. The two suspects haven’t been taken into custody yet, but they could be arrested before the end of the week.

XXXTentacion was gunned down Monday afternoon (Jun. 18) in broad daylight as he sat in his car after leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida, which is not too far from where he lives.

The shooting happened in front of several witnesses, who reported seeing “masked men” fleeing the scene. X was reportedly shot in the neck and died instantly.

A Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from the scene and police have yet to determine if the men accused of XXXTentacion’s murder had any personal ties to the entertainer.

XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Arrested (MUGSHOT)

The man accused of murdering XXXTentacion has been arrested.

TMZ first broke the news that 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams was taken into custody by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department Wednesday (Jun. 20) and was booked for first-degree murder for his alleged involvement in the shooting death of XXXTentacion.

During a vigil in South Florida Wednesday night, X’s mother reportedly told family and friends she had gotten word from police that they had XXX’s alleged murder in custody.

Someone at the vigil mentioned that there was a chase on highway I-95, which ended with cops arresting Williams for X’s murder.

Williams was arrested for operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license, violating his probation, and, of course, allegedly murdering XXXTentacion. His charges include first-degree murder and grand theft auto. He’s currently being held in Broward County’s main jail facility with no bond for his murder charge, though his driving without a license charge has a $25 bail.

You can see Williams’ charges in detail via his arrest report below:

According to the Miami Herald, Williams was in the middle of serving five years probation on four counts of grand theft auto when he was arrested Wednesday.

TMZ reports Williams, who has at least 11 felonies on his record, has been arrested before for crimes including cocaine possession, weapons possession, domestic violence, and aggravated assault with a firearm. During an incident in 2014, he allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend’s head.

According to an Instagram profile with the username “_tattoomanchucky” that appears to belong to Williams, he is a tattoo artist. Coincidentally, a June 5th post is captioned: “Thank God I ain’t dead or behind bars.”

His most recent post was around 1 p.m. EST Wednesday afternoon, not too long before his arrest.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed Monday afternoon (Jun. 18) as he sat in his car after leaving RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

The shooting happened in broad daylight in front of several witnesses, who reported seeing at least two masked men fleeing the scene. Eyewitnesses said the rapper was shot in the neck and died instantly.

No word yet on whether police know who the other men involved in the shooting are.

Jeremy Webster’s Booking Photo Released by Westminster, Colorado Police

Westminster, Colorado police have finally released the mugshot of the man accused of shooting four people, including a child who died, in the parking lot of a dental office after a road rage incident Thursday afternoon (Jun. 14).

23-year-old Jeremy John Webster was arrested on murder charges in connection with the deadly shooting that was the result of an alleged road rage incident.

PREVIOUSLY: Colorado Man Accused of Shooting 4 People, Killing a Child, in Dentist Office Parking Lot

Jeremy Webster is being charged with murder in the first degree after deliberation with intent, murder in the first-degree with extreme indifference, assault in the first degree, and criminal attempt to commit a class one felony. He is being held without bond and is due in court on Monday (Jun. 18).

Of the four people Webster opened fire on, three were a mother and her two sons. The 41-year-old mother and her 8-year-old son are in critical condition, while the mother’s 8-year-old son died as a result of his injuries. An adult male not related to the victims was also involved in the shooting. It is believed he will survive.

“When officers arrived on the scene, they found two adults and two children, suffering from gunshot wounds,” police said in the news release. “All four victims were shot in the parking lot of the business complex. There were no additional victims in any of the businesses.”

“An adult male who was shot is expected to survive his injuries. There is no relation between this victim and the below-listed victims,” police said. “An adult female and her two male children were also struck by gunfire. The female and one of the children sustained life-threatening injuries and are in critical condition. A juvenile male succumbed to his injuries.”

Police said the suspect didn’t know any of the victims, whose names have not yet been released.

According to the Denver Post, at least 20 people witnessed the shooting. One witness told The Post he “found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and his clothes saturated in blood,” The man was “very coherent” and “very calm,” the witness said.

A reporter for Denver’s Contact 7 News obtained a search warrant in the case that provided more details into the shooting. It was revealed that Webster allegedly used a Glock 19 handgun in the shooting, and one of the mother’s sons (who was not injured in the shooting) described to police what happened, saying that his mom “had some sort of altercation near the intersection of Sheridan Blvd. and Turnpike Drive.”

The uninjured boy allegedly told police that Webster followed his mother’s car into the parking lot of the office building where the shootings happened and parked behind her car. A total of three children were in the car—two of them were shot; one of the two who were shot died.

The woman snapped a picture of Webster’s license plate and then exited the car with her children, and then an argument ensued, DenverChannel.com reported. As Webster and the woman argued, witnesses saw Webster pull out a handgun and shoot the woman “multiple times,” according to the warrant.

The woman fell to the ground, and Webster then turned to two of the boys and shot them both multiple times, the affidavit said. As Webster started to walk back toward his car, he turned around and shot one of the boys again as he was lying on the ground. The third child was able to run away from the scene without being shot.

After shooting the woman and her two sons, Webster made eye contact with a man in a different vehicle—a pickup truck—with his daughter. As Webster walked toward the man’s truck, he fired at it multiple times, hitting the man in both arms. He was able to put his truck in reverse and drive out of the parking lot. Thankfully, his daughter was not injured.

The woman’s 12-year-old son, who wasn’t injured in the shooting, was able to describe to police about the road rage incident and about the photo his mother took of the suspect’s license plate, which allowed officers to be able to track the vehicle to Webster, who was later apprehended on I-25 near Castle Rock.

9 News reporter Katie Eastman said she spoke with the owner of a car shop near the dentist office where the shooting occurred. The shop owner said he heard around seven or eight “deliberate” gunshots and watched a man run down the sidewalk. The shop owner said he saw police running after the man when they arrived on the scene.

Jeremy Webster reportedly waived his Miranda rights and admitted to the shooting. He also told police that he suffers from “mental health issues” and had just started a new prescription medication the day of the shooting.

Webster informed police that his new medication and the box for the handgun were at his house. The claims about his mental state and medication haven’t yet been independently verified beyond what the affidavit states.

Police have identified the accused shooter as Jeremy John Webster—who reportedly shot four people, including two children, in the parking lot outside of a Westminster, Colorado dentist’s office. According to police, road rage is believed to have been the motive for the shooting, which left a child dead.

Police said that the suspect didn’t know any of the victims, whose names have not yet been released.

Of the four victims, three were a mother and her two juvenile sons, one of which was killed.

1The mass shooting happened outside a dental office in Westminster, Colorado.


Thursday’s shooting in Westminster, Colorado is the latest mass shooting to traumatize the United States. The first reports of the incident said that an active shooter was near a dental office, and the suspect was still at large for several hours.

Initial reports stated that the shooting occurred inside a dental office, but that later proved untrue. The shooting happened in the parking lot outside Comfort Dental at 80th and Sheridan.

23-year-old Jeremy John Webmaster from Colorado Springs was first identified as the shooter by CBS Denver the Friday morning after the shooting. Webster was arrested after a wildlife officer spotted his car, which was described by police as a black 4-door Toyota Corolla with a Colorado license plate (NPQ-091).

Children’s Dentistry of Westminster posted a statement on Facebook:

“We want to thank everyone in the community for the outpouring of support we received after the tragic and senseless incident that occurred today.

21 Savage Pulls Out Gun During Fight at Pool Party in Atlanta

Video footage has surfaced showing 21 Savage brandishing a pistol during a recent pool party.

While 21 Savage seems like he’s been moving away from the streets in recent times, it looks like he’s still one step away from reminding the world he’s still about that thug life.

According to TMZ, 21 and his crew were attending an annual pool party in Atlanta officially dubbed the “Big Ass Pool Party” when suddenly a large group of people crashed the event.

After one of the party crashers hurled an insult at a girl in 21’s group, all hell broke loose. The video from the hectic scene shows people throwing blows, with one man getting laid out in the grass.

In response to the man getting knocked out, one of the crashers reportedly pulled out a weapon, which prompted 21 to get his gun too. In the video clip, you can actually see 21 walk over to his friend wearing a satchel and take the revolver from him.

WATCH HERE:

Thankfully, no shots were fired and no one was seriously injured, other than the guy who got knocked out, of course. Cops eventually arrived and shut the party down. No arrests were made, according to reports.

This video is a far cry from the 21 Savage we’ve been hearing about recently. In response to the Pusha T and Drake Beef, Savage mimicked Rodney King’s sentiments, calling for rappers to just get along and “kill all this beef.”

He also delivered some helpful financial advice to his fellow rappers, advising them to invest their money and give back to underprivileged communities instead of buying a bunch of jewelry. He said in an interview with Vogue, “Ever since I’ve been saving money and not spending it on jewelry, I’ve been getting way richer.”

Chicago Rapper & Friend of ZackTV Accused of Setting Up His Murder Shot Dead

An up-and-coming rapper out of Chicago who was close friends with Zachary “ZackTV” Stoner was reportedly killed this weekend, and many believe it was because of allegations that had something to do with Zack Stoner’s murder.

According to internet reports, Chicago rapper “T Streetz” (not to be confused with Young Money rapper T Streets) was gunned down in the city late Friday night (Jun. 8). The shooting apparently happened after T Streetz went to police to clear his name after people online were accusing him of setting up ZackTV’s murder.

RELATED: Fast Facts About Zachary “ZackTV” Stoner, Chicago YouTube Vlogger Killed in Drive-By Shooting

Zachary Stoner, a YouTube vlogger who ran a popular channel called “Zack TV,” which was considered the “Hood CNN,” was shot and killed in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood on Wednesday, May 30th. Police said the 30-year-old was driving his jeep around 1:30 a.m. when a driver of another vehicle pulled up beside his car and fired a number of shots.

Zack was shot in the head and neck before he hit a curb and crashed into a light pole. He was rushed to Northwestern Hospital in critical condition, where he later died of his injuries. Friends said Zack had just left a rap concert at Refuge—a nightclub less than a half a mile away from the scene of the shooting.

Video footage showing the shooting’s aftermath was posted on social media. A man could be heard frantically shouting “Let’s go!” as several others ran from a damaged Chevy Caprice to a third car that was on the scene, which drove away.

Police still haven’t identified the suspected the shooter(s) and are still piecing together evidence to help find out who was responsible for Zack’s murder. But internet sleuths who felt like they already had the answers pinned the crime on Zack’s friend T Streetz.

Zack and Streetz worked closely together setting up and conducting interviews with rappers in Chicago for ZackTV. Last week, people started accusing T Streetz of somehow being involved with Zack’s murder.

A number of prominent Chicago internet personalities were claiming on social media that T Streetz was one of the men in the video (above) seen fleeing the scene after Zack was killed, however, there has been no solid evidence to support those claims.

But when Zack’s mom, Yolanda Jones, went on Facebook calling someone out for setting Zack up, the rumor mill went into overdrive, with many assuming she was referring to T Streetz.

Hours before he was killed, T Streetz went to a police station in Chicago in an effort to clear his name, and he documented the visit with a Facebook Live recording.

In the video, he called out so-called “internet detectives” for accusing him of setting up Zack TV’s murder, which he adamantly denied. It is believed that the Facebook Live video led T Streetz’ killers right to him, because later that night, he was murdered.

Another video posted on YouTube purports to show the scene where police found T Streetz body early Saturday morning after he was gunned down the night before.

According to the Chicago Tribune, at least five people were killed in shootings between Friday night and early Saturday morning, and this part of their report appears to describe T Streetz murder:

Officers responding to a call of a person down about 6:10 a.m. in Bronzeville found a man unresponsive in the 4500 block of South Champlain Avenue. He had multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead, police said. Detectives in Area Central are investigating.

It is believed that this photo shows T Streetz’ lifeless body on the sidewalk under a white sheet while police survey the scene for evidence:

Coincidentally, Zack Stoner’s funeral was held Saturday in Chicago.
