Matt Jones, receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested in Arkansas this morning, July 10th, for possession of a controlled substance.
When police officers approached the vehicle he was sitting in and saw him chopping up and scraping together a white powder with a credit card, he was ordered out of the car. After disregarding the initial order, police drew guns on Jones and at that time Jones complied. A police report also noted Jones stated that the substance was cocaine (a test later proved the statement correct).
Jones was booked into the Washington County Detention Center, along with two other men that were in the car. It is unclear at this time why Jones, who was quarterback for the University of Alabama, is in the state.
