INKSTER — Sources have reported that Michigan State Representative Jewell Jones is awaiting arraignment following a vehicle accident.
Jones (D-Inkster), represents the 11th District, which is all of Garden City and Inkster and portions of Dearborn Heights, Livonia and Westland. He is 25-years-old and reportedly facing multiple charges following an accident on I-96 near Fowlerville.
“I can confirm troopers from the Michigan State Police Brighton Post were dispatched to a crash in Livingston County along I-96 last night, Tuesday, April 6,” MSP spokeswoman Lori Dougovito told the Detroit Free Press. “The resulting investigation led to the arrest of a 25-year-old male from Inkster. The report has been submitted to the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office for review.”
While MSP would not confirm the identity, a Livingston County Sheriff told Fox 2 Detroit that Jones had been released from custody pending lab results.
The initial charges filed against Jones include obstruction, which is a felony, and two misdemeanor charges for a weapon and traffic offense. Exact nature of what led to the charges has not been revealed.
Jones was originally scheduled to be arraigned on April 7, but that was changed and a new scheduled date has not been released.
