But the singer was let off the hook, sort of, by local police.

According to reports, Jones’ legal issues weren’t serious enough to cause too much of a stir.

His offense was that he gave police a false name … twice and failed to appear in court. So warrants were issued for his arrest.

But the New Jersey township police have bigger fish to fry. Besides, Jones is in California now.
