Rapper Jim Jones admits guilt in Connecticut casino riot

The Day newspaper reports Jones appeared in New London Superior Court on Tuesday and paid a $1,000 fine to resolve the criminal case.

Jones is a hip-hop artist and actor whose “We Fly High” was one of 2007’s top-selling rap tracks. He’s one of the Diplomats, a New York-based rap crew. He’s identified in court files as Joseph Jones, of Newark, N.J.
