Jermaine Jones Criminal History: Revealed, Ugly

by at . Comments

As previously reported, Jermaine Jones will be cut from American Idol tonight - and now we have a much clearer idea why.

The 6'8" finalist is reportedly anything but a gentle giant, as TMZ has uncovered details from his March 5, 2011 arrest.

It stemmed from an incident at a Howard Johnson hotel in New Jersey, where Jones gave police a phony name and was charged with public nuisance and obstruction of justice, while also possessing outstanding warrants.

Then, on 11/27/11, Jones gave cops a different fake name when the car he was riding in got pulled over. In this case, he was booked for hindering apprehension and giving false information to avoid self-discovery, while - again - having outstanding warrants in his (real) name.

Moreover, sources say Jones has been "very aggressive" behind the American Idol scenes, once yelling at a staff members over his wardrobe selection.

Still, despite his past transgressions, it's conceivable Jermaine could have remained on the show if he had just been up front. Instead, he swore to producers that his record was clean.

Honesty, readers. It remains the best policy.

@ Drummer LOL. What does Obama have to do with this conversation? If you're suggesting you know who I vote for, you're a fool! And basically wrong. Keep �puking� and realize the conversation is about a contestant on a show, not politics. Also, run a spell check before posting. How did you ever get through elementary school with that kind of spelling?

My good I stumbled into a batch of OBAMa supporters... "I didn't know" "follow his dreams"
"I thought he was the sweetest, black man in the world" Puke(s.

I knew there was something not right with Jermaine. I hope he gets help with his issues, takes care of his personal business so he can move forward, to enable him to follow his dreams.

@ Jezluk. That is funny you mention his odd reactions (not in line with � gentle�) did you see his reaction to the country guy he did a song with? , how Jermaine reacted when the other contestant touched him with excitement, you could tell he was mad! LOL.

Any negative critique he had received from the judges would significantly change his demeanor (and I don't mean the usual "disappointed" face, but more like an underlying angry "screw you" kind of response). I always found that interesting and wondered about the authenticity of his being "gentle".

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
