Jacksonville wide receiver Matt Jones was arrested Monday in Washington County, Arkansas, charged with violating the terms of his probation. Jones reportedly tested positive for the demon rum after a random drug test last week.
Jones admitted in court yesterday to drinking after playing golf with friends last week. As a consequence, Jones was recharged with his original offense from last year– possession of a controlled substance and jailed, where he will stay though the weekend. This led to a flurry of initial reports (including one by ESPN.com) that Jones was arrested on a new possession charge. At first, none of this made any sense whatsoever to us, then we remember that we’re talking about Arkansas here.
As you may recall, the former Razorback QB later served a three game suspension last season. One would have to think Jones’ future in the NFL is questionable at this point. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear about Jones blowing rails with Kenny Powers and Clegg in Shaboom’s parking lot.
