jim jones*Rapper Jim Jones got into a big ol’ brawl Friday night in Connecticut which resulted in him getting arrested, but not before it took five cops and a little bit of mace to subdue him, according to reports.

The fight (scroll down to see the video) went down inside the casino after a party hosted by Diddy at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. Including Jones, a total of 5 people have been charged. Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Sources say a guy, who seemed intoxicated, came up to Jones and started talking smack to him, which Jones tried to ignore.

According to our sources, the guy then hit Jones in the face and Jones fought back in self defense. Then the guy’s friends jumped in … then Jim’s people jumped in … and IT WAS ON!!!

We’re told Jones had no idea who the guy was or what triggered his beef with Jones.

Jones, 35, was charged with resisting arrest for an alleged assault on an officer and breach of peace, state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said. The other four people arrested faced charges including inciting to riot.

Vance said he was not certain how the altercation began.

Jones said on Twitter that he posted $40,000 in bond, adding later Saturday: “This is gettin blown way out of proportion.”

According to TMZ, Jones had no further comment and neither did the hotel.
