Rapper Jim Jones was arrested in New Jersey earlier today ... after cops say he "got out of line" with a police officer who was trying to deal with a parking situation.

According to police, Jones confronted an officer who was responding to a complaint about an illegally parked car in front of Jim's home.

Cops say the officer ran Jim's name through the system and noticed two warrants out for the rapper's arrest -- one for a motor vehicle violation and the other for failure to remove snow from his sidewalk ... apparently, that's a crime in NJ.

According to the Fair Lawn Patch, Jones denied the existence of the warrants and became disorderly with the officer ... so the cop put him under arrest for disorderly conduct and obstruction.

Jim was taken to a nearby station where he was booked.

Story developing ....

Don't you know you live in Jersey. They don't play. A warrant for not shoveling. That's a crock.

Failure to remove snow? How many people in NJ have been arrested for this? NJ must have empty jail cells they need to fill up.

Why do you only report on black people when they get arrested? And for not removing snow from their own damn yard at that? This website is so blatantly racist it's disgusting.
