Back in March rapper Jim Jones was arrested for driving his Bentley in a SoHo bus lane with a suspended license. Today he appeared at Manhattan Criminal Court (late) and copped to a misdemeanor traffic violation that cost him $200 plus an $80 surcharge. According to his lawyer he didn't know his license was suspended and "must have missed the notices that he owed a fine."
