According to witnesses who called 911, State Representative Jewell Jones was speeding down I-95 in his black Chevy Tahoe before he ran off the road in a ditch. A woman traveling with Jones was transported via ambulance to the hospital. However, Jones became combative with police officers who arrived at the scene. Mr. Jones had a blood alcohol level of .19, twice the legal limit.
Mr. Jones refused to present his drivers license and then began physically struggling with officers who were attempting to handcuff him.
The state representative then claimed Governor Gretchen Whitmer would get involved and began threatening the police.

Prosecutors say Jones has been charged with resisting arrest, operating a motor vehicle with high blood alcohol content (.19), operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, possession of a weapon under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving.
