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.
