FAIR LAWN, N.J., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Hip-hop artist Jim Jones was charged with disorderly conduct after an altercation with a police officer outside his home in Fair Lawn, N.J., officials said.

The Fair Lawn-Saddle Patch reported Jones was arrested Wednesday after he yelled at an officer responding to a complaint of a snowbound and illegally parked car outside Jones' home.

The officer ran Jones' name through a police database and discovered two warrants for his arrest -- one from Paterson for a motor vehicle violation and one from Fair Lawn for failure to remove snow from his sidewalk, the newspaper said.

The officer requested Jones go with him to police headquarters to settle the warrants, but Jones denied any wrongdoing and allegedly became disorderly, prompting his arrest, the report said.
