Michigan Lawmaker Caught Sneaking Handcuff Key Into Jail After Bond Is Revoked


A state representative who was arrested on Tuesday after violating his bond for the third time tried to sneak a handcuff key into the Livingston County Jail.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office took Michigan State Representative Jewell Jones into custody in the courtroom on Sept. 14 after the judge revoked his bond in a drunk driving case, WJBK reported.

Jones was out on bond following an April arrest after he drove under the influence and was found by police with his pants down with a woman in his wrecked SUV.

He fought with police and paramedics who were trying to care for his injured passenger and then police found a loaded Glock in the cup holder of his SUV.

Jones initially posted a video of himself to social media that showed he had two black eyes and implied that he had been the victim of police brutality

But police released dashcam video of the incident that showed Jones threatening and then fighting with police and paramedics who were trying to treat his passenger before he was arrested, WJBK reported.

Then the toxicology came back and showed he had a blood alcohol level of .19, Jones was re-arrested and charged with four counts of resisting and obstructing a police officer, operating a vehicle with a high blood alcohol content, operating while intoxicated, reckless driving, and possession of a weapon while under the influence of alcohol, The Detroit News reported.

The police report said that paramedics noticed that Jones and his female passenger both had their pants down when first responders arrived.

Jones was holding the woman up, and she had vomited and appeared to be unable to stand on her own, according to the police report.

When paramedics tried to treat her, Jones announced that he and the woman were important people and asked them to either take her home or help him put her in his car so he could take her home, WJBK reported.
