Jim Jones Alleges Racial Profiling After Being Searched By Cops
Jim Jones claims to be the most recent victim of DWB (driving while black).
The “We Fly High” MC couldn’t make use of his Diplomat immunity to avoid being searched by Port Authority Police at Newark Airport.
His rep tells TMZ that Jones was waiting to pick up a friend Friday (Apr. 19) when he was approached by an officer who reportedly picked up the scent of marijuana from his vehicle. The rapper was then instructed to exit his car as cops searched his person and car.
But Jones is crying foul. The rep is saying cops didn’t find a single piece of the sticky icky but still gave the former Love & Hip Hop star a citation for driving without a license. They added by saying Jimmy is far from thrilled about the incident, saying, “He was searched for nothing more than racial profiling.”
Officials tell the gossip site they are looking into it.
