Default Matt Jones Arrested/Cut from Jaguars

Good to hear bad news for the Jags. Though, him being in a game isn't bad since he sux.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3481361

Quote:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Fayetteville police say Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones was arrested early Thursday on a felony drug charge after officers found him in a parked car, cutting up what was suspected to be cocaine.

A police report said officers approached the car and found Jones inside, using a credit card to chop up a white substance. Police said an officer drew his handgun after Jones did not immediately show his hands.

Police said they found a jar with possible marijuana residue inside the car and a plastic bag of what was likely cocaine. Officers say Jones admitted he had cocaine.

According to the Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville, police said 6 grams of the white substance later tested positive for cocaine.

Police say two others inside the car, Jared Hicks and Benjamin Cook, were also arrested on misdemeanor drug charges.

Jones, who is 25, was being held in the Washington County Detention Center on Thursday pending a court hearing, said Kelly Cantrell, a spokeswoman for the county's sheriff's office, according to the report.

Jones, who has spent all three of his NFL seasons with the Jaguars, was a quarterback at the University of Arkansas, which is in Fayetteville. Last season in Jacksonville, he caught 24 paasses for 317 yards and four touchdowns.

I think this might be the end of his tenure in J-Ville. Too bad, cuz he always gives the opposing team chances at tip drill picks.

As soon as he gets bail he needs to head immediately to the unemployment office.

Jones: Yes well I know I am technically notunemplyed but I will be by the time the paper work goes through.

Unemployment office clerk: Mr Jones it could be said you have been drawing welfare checks the last three years with how you have performed on the field.

Yowza! I don't know how big of loss this really is for the Jags but it definitely doesn't HELP them! Too bad it's the one team in our division we CAN beat.

He does seem to look really wide-eyed when the grounds crew lays down the lines on the field. Loser loser loser.

I don't guess I will ever understand why they do it. I know they are young with alot of money but dang. As much as I loved my weed back in the day I gave it up when I grew up. I work for the government now and when I started out for them I was making $7.69 an hour and still didn't want to lose the job over it. I can't imagine throwing away a job making millions over it.

Here is what I'll never get...Len Bias.

Whether you believe Bias did it once or was a user makes no difference. It does show that the stuff can kill quickly though. Go drink a beer, pass out and wake up. Don't sniff the nose candy. Unreal.

He might want to do that after he heads to the Bank, calls his credit card companies, goes to the Social Security office, and the DPS to secure all his personal information and accounts.

The police just slapped his home adress, D.L. #, and even his social security # all over the internet.... His house has probably already been robbed since everybody knows where he is at.

His phone number too. Ouch! I can't believe all that was made public.

Anyone want to prank call him and pretend to be Mr. Rogers. You can snort with a straw, sure you can. Go ahead, you can do it. We'll watch you while I put on my sweater.

Ya think his lawyer might have a field day with this one. Talk about a slam dunk civil lawsuit, because once you have his social security number you can just wait and steal his idenity later.

Arrest records are public information.

The guy was probably already on his way out of Jacksonville before this arrest. This certainly makes his release come that much quicker. I don't see this having much of an effect on the Jaguars because Jones really never brought anything worthwhile to the table. I do wonder how long he's been doing cocaine because I'm pretty sure they test for it in the NFL. If he has been doing it for awhile I'd be curious to know how he's not failed a drug test.
