JagWired -- NFL Star Busted for Drugs

7/10/2008 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matt Jones, a former number one draft pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was popped early this morning in Fayetteville, Ark. after cops found him sitting in a parked car, "cutting up" a white substance. Wonder what that was??

Cops say they approached the car and found the wide receiver inside, using a credit card to chop up what appeared to be cocaine. Cops drew their guns at Jones after he did not immediately put his hands up.

Also inside the car, police say they found a jar containing possible pot residue and another baggie with a white substance. Jones allegedly admitted that it was cocaine.

Cops arrested Jones and two other passengers in the car.

This doesn't tell us the reason the cops approached. If it's not a good one, they may beat the rap.

Lawyer up, bucko.

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

omg, if people wanna do drugs it's their business! It's sad they send people to jail for this, I believe in arresting the dealers but not the users. I get so sick of them picking up the little guys caus e they have a little bag of coke.

Don't try to excuse his behavior! The cops have every right to approach you if you are sitting in your car on public property. He was cutting up coke in public. At the very least he should be charged with being a total dumbass.

# 3, you are obviously either not a lawyer or not a good one. The car was parked, suspicious behavior may have been reported, therefore, any police officer can approach the car, and since Jones was doing this in plain site, no need to initially search the vehicle. This is different than pulling over a MOVING vehicle where you need probable cause to pull it over.

#4 Hello, numbnuts, you get the dealers by arresting those who are in possession. "Tell me where you got the junk and you will be looking at a lesser charge." And dont think for an instant, that the "little guys" as you put it, dont deal as well. Wake up.
