http://msn.foxsports.com/image/resize?contentId=8331940&width=268&height=176Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones faces a felony drug charge in his former college town after police say he was inside a car cutting up cocaine with a credit card.

The 25-year-old Jones and two others were arrested early Thursday. A police report said officers approached the car and an officer drew his handgun after Jones did not immediately show his hands.
Police said they searched the vehicle and found a plastic bag filled with a white substance that tested positive for cocaine and a jar with possible marijuana residue.
Jared Hicks and Benjamin Cook were also arrested on misdemeanor drug charges. Jones will be arraigned Friday on a charge of felony possession of a controlled substance.
Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said he was waiting to learn details of the case.
"We're trying to investigate that now," Weaver said. "We don't have all the facts. We will comment on that once we have all the facts." Jones, a star quarterback at Arkansas and a first-round pick in 2005, failed to develop into the go-to receiver Jacksonville thought he could be.

http://media.scout.com/media/image/49/495768.jpgMatt Jones BUSTED for Cocaine offered an explination.

According to an indepth Police report Jones is an admitted member of the Arkansas Crips. Quote "My cow died last night, so I don't need your Bull. Ofcourse there are Gangs all over Arkansas, don't **** down my back and tell me it's raining."

Police say the small Gangs in Arkansas are mostly sparatic and very un-organized.

"We gang bang all the time in Arkansas but lately it's been hotter than a Goats *** in a pepper patch." Matt said.

Which may explain why he was aprehended in a parking lot in his small College town of Fayetteville Arkansas. "It's not our fault. We were in the Hotel and I called up the Clerk at the front desk and told her I had a leak in my sink, she said go ahead. That's sick I'm not urinating in the same sink I poop in! We headed to the parking lot."

Matt claims repeatedly that it wasn't all his fault but his slip-up has to do with the high crime area of Arkansas "We had little choice of entertainment since they raised the drinking age to 32 to keep the Alchohol out of our High Schools."

When approached by the Officers in the parking lot Jones was reportedly chopping lines of Cocaine on the dash with a credit card. The arresting officer asked if Jones had any I.D...Jones replied "bout' what?" which led to the initial suspicion then eventually the car seach that recovered Cocaine and traces of Marjuanna.

Jones faces up to a year in jail for his crimes. To further embarassment Matt Jones may lose his wife in this ordeal but as he says "Atleast we will remain cousins." Adding "If I go to jail I'm gonna WILL everything to her"...but under Arkansas Law she cannot touch it untill she's 14.

Well, besides him being American and playing in the NFL their lives are quite similar.

Yes well, apart from that, their names happen to be quite similar as well. Perhaps even strikingly similar considering they have the same name.
