Jim Jones Takes Plea Deal in Casino Brawl Case
Jim Jones is finally off the hook for his role in this past February's casino brawl.
Per TMZ's reports, Jones has just struck a deal with prosecutors for his involvement in February's Foxwoods Casino melee in Connecticut, which resulted in an alleged riot. Jones, who originally pled "not guilty" for the three misdemeanor charges stemmed against him, has now pled guilty for the interfering with an officer charge after prosecutors made a decision to drop all remaining charges.
As first reported, the Harlem rapper was approached by a man who began confronting him. The man soon started swinging on Jones, who then retaliated. More people from both parties then got involved, and the altercation escalated. In order to restrain him, authorities resulted to using mace on Jones, who was later charged with assault on a police officer and breach of peace.
As of press time, he's ordered to pay a $1,000 fine with the case officially being closed. —Ralph Bristout (@XXLRalph)
