Rapper Jim Jones was arrested on an outstanding warrant in Teaneck early yesterday morning, police confirmed today (April 7).
The Harlem-based artist, whose real name is Joseph Guillermo Jones II, even took the time to update his Twitter page while being processed by Teaneck police.
He told the Twitter online community when he got pulled over in a 12:24 a.m. post from his phone, or “Twitterberry.”
“I decide to drive by myself let’s see how this plays out,” he wrote.
His next update came around 1:10 a.m. when he wrote, “Well it didn’t go the way I wanted I’m in the precinct but I still have my phone they ain’t trippin they said just procedure.”
He even updated his more than 22,000 followers on Twitter when he was released.
“Misses officer let me go the funny part was watching them have to count all the money in my pocket lol I must say they were very cool,” he wrote at 1:53 a.m.
“And it was a punk ass warrant from 2005 for 120 dollars,” he continued. “Make sure you pay old tickets.”
Jones recently released his latest album, Pray IV Reign.
