A representative for Jim Jones is adamant the star’s arrest in New York on Monday morning was a misunderstanding as the embattled rapper does not have a suspended driving license.
The hip-hop star was detained by cops and booked for driving on a suspended license, just days after he was taken intocustody for his part in a brawl at a Connecticut casino.

However, a rep for Jones is adamant the driving charge will be “thrown out” as the rapper has not had any troubles with his license.

The spokesperson also insists Jones was a passenger in the car, which had been parked while the driver stopped at a store to pick up groceries.

Jones is said to have only stepped behind the wheel when cops asked him to move the car in the absence of the driver, and it was then the star was detained, according to

The rep tells the website, “Jim does not have a suspended license… (He was) very cool and respectable (during the incident)… It’ll all be thrown out.”
