Jim Jones arrested in Jersey: TWEETIN! [not BALLIN'!]

Rappers get arrested all the time. Especially in New Jersey [specifically Bergen County].

I could give you a laundry list of rappers who have been arrested in Bergen County. Notorious B.I.G., Lil' Kim, Lil' Cease, Foxy Brown, DMX, etc. Even the R&B bad boys from Jodeci -- K-Ci and Devante Swing -- have been picked up by police in Teaneck.

However, this time it was Harlem's own Jim Jones who was scooped up by the Teaneck police.

What makes this arrest even more interesting [or funny] is that he was using Twitter and updating the public by the minute about his arrest!!

If you don't know what Twitter is at this point, you've probably been under a rock.

Check out the story I wrote about Jones getting arrested and tweeting as he was processed: CLICK HERE to read my story. (Of course I broke this story this morning....all these hip-hop sites swagger-jacked my story, many without proper attribution or linking to the original source. Shame on them.)

Also, I have to note that apparently Jones has read the story.

Since hearing of the article he's updated his Twitter page to say the following:

Side note:

I guess the new catch-phrase for 2009 will be "TWEETIN'!!" [instead of "BALLIN'!!!"]. Okay, maybe not.
