(RepublicanNews.org) – Anyone with a driver’s license should know that driving drunk is a crime. It’s unfortunate that people willingly do this and put the lives of others at risk. Michigan State Police (MSP) officers recently captured a Democratic Michigan state representative on video threatening them during his drunken arrest.
WDIV-TV reported on April 25 that MSP dashboard camera footage shows MSP officers taking Rep. Jewell Jones into custody for suspicion of drunk driving and resisting arrest after an April 6 crash.

The video showed Fowler threatening to “call Gov. Whitmer right now,” adding that “I’m a state rep.” He also told officers, “Y’all don’t know who y’all dealing with, bro.”
State police reported it took pepper spray and two Taser pulses to control Jones. His blood test showed an alcohol level of 0.19%, more than two times the legal limit.
Jones faces multiple charges ranging from operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated to felony resisting and obstructing a police officer. Prosecutors also charged him for carrying a .40-caliber Glock handgun in his vehicle while under the influence.
Jones’ attorney confirmed his client “will continue to faithfully serve” as a state representative. He currently awaits trial after being released on a $15,000 personal bond.
