Jim Jones

Calls BS on Suspended License

2/27/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0227_jim_jones_ex
Jim Jones claims he DOESN'T have a suspended driver's license in New York ... insisting cops made a big boo boo by arresting him earlier today.

A rep for the rapper tells TMZ ... Jim is adamant there must have been a mistake in the computer system ... simply stating, "Jim does not have a suspended license."

The rep says Jim's lawyers have already been dispatched to remedy the situation.

The worst part ... Jim claims he was originally sitting in the PASSENGER seat of the car ... when his driver stopped in front of a store to pick up a few items.  Jim claims cops approached him and told him to move the car ... so he did ... and shortly after Jim got in the driver's seat, he was pulled over. During the stop, cops were informed he had a suspended license ... and took him into custody.

Still, the rep tells us ... the cops were "very cool and respectable" during the incident ... and adds, "It'll all be thrown out."

It's the 2nd time Jim has been arrested in 3 days ... as we previously reported Jones was cuffed following a massive brawl at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Friday night.

Not much of a story. What would be AMAZING would be if they could find a rapper that has a license, pays his taxes, and has kids with only one woman.
But I think there's a better chance the Holy Grail is hidden in my pantry.

meanwhile there are there are actual crimes going on . when a thirty year old can have sex with a sixteen year old in nevada but if they cross the border to california it is illegal , or if you have parents consent you can marry their 16 year old daughter in vegas how does this prevent parents from selling their kids or the kid and parents both being bought with money

I don't know who this guy is or care . . . but I actually spent a day in jail for a ticket I actually paid that was never reported as 'paid' in the Department of Motor Vehicle's computer . . So they had issued a warrant and suspended my license. Once I got out of jail (pissed) I got my receipt and went to show them . . they told me it happens more then people know. So who knows?
