“I’ll call governor Whitmer right now,” Jones can be heard saying on the video. “I’m a state rep.”
Law enforcement struggled to arrest Jones and had to use a taser and pepper spray to get him under control, according to a police report.
State Troopers were seen taking a belligerent Jones to the ground where he threatened to unleash the might of the state government on them – “I run y’alls budgets” Jones said to the cops.
“Police said Jones — who refused a blood test — had a blood-alcohol content of 0.19% after a warrant was obtained — more than twice the legal limit,” according to Click on Detroit.
Jewell Jones faces charges including resisting and obstructing officers — a felony — driving with a high blood-alcohol content, reckless driving and possessing a weapon while under the influence, Click on Detroit reported.
