publish date: 2018-07-09
Jim Jones was on a recent JetBlue flight to Texas when he got into an argument with the plane's captain.
According to cell phone footage of the incident, Jones was nearly kicked off the aircraft after he was accused of being noncompliant. In the clip, the Dipset rapper— who was scheduled to perform in Austin with The Diplomats on July 6 — asks for a supervisor and is greeted by the captain who says he's 'not doing too good.'
“I'm not feeling too good either 'cause I'm getting profiled,' Jones replies. 'What did I do wrong captain? I take JetBlue every other day. I never have a problem with JetBlue. This is the only flight I take. I’m sitting there and the lady asks me to take out the pamphlet. I took out the pamphlet.'
Following a brief argument, the captain offers Jones a seat and he accepts.
Jones isn't exactly having a relaxing summer. Last month, he was arrested in Atlanta on gun and drug charges after the person he was riding with decided to take police on a car chase.
The 41-year-old was charged with multiple felonies, including possession of a stolen gun, possession of a firearm during commission of a crime and possession of narcotics. He was also charged with a misdemeanor for prescription pills not being in their original container.
