Jermaine Jones, the 25-year-old American Idol in the final 12 – the one with the big and very deep voice, has been bumped off the show after outstanding warrants for his arrest were discovered.
It was odd to see this very, very big guy in tears several times as the Idol auditions were underway. He was not chosen to go to Hollywood but was a wild card pick, and in the latest eliminations, he made the Final 12 and through the first night’s competition.
Jermaine Jones, 25, is wanted in three separate counties for failing to appear in court on a variety of criminal charges dating back to 2006, according to court records. His two most recent arrests came last year in Camden County, where he works as a vocal instructor.
The oldest warrant stems from a 2006 narcotics bust in Salem County. Jones’s next collar came in 2008 in Woodbury, where he was cited on an open container charge. In 2009 he was nabbed for providing cops with a false name in Winslow Township. Read the full story here.
