The rapper Jim Jones was arrested on Saturday following a brawl at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut.
The fight broke out around 2 a.m. Saturday morning in the lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel after a party hosted by Sean "Diddy" Combs. Four other people were arrested and one state police officer was treated for minor injuries sustained in the incident.
Jones, whose fifth studio album, Capo, came out in April, was charged with resisting arrest for an alleged assault on an officer as well as breach of peace. He later tweeted that he was released on a $40,000 bond. "This is gettin blown way out of proportion," he wrote.
