New Orleans Rapper Jay Jones Hit With Assault Charges Over Attack On Tourists

The "Go Crazy" rapper also ran into legal issues down in Miami.

(AllHipHop News) A rapper associated with rap star Lil Wayne was caught up in a crazy incident during Rolling Loud in Miami.

According to reports, New Orleans rapper Jay Jones was in town for the hip-hop festival, which went off without a hitch.

Police say Jay Jones was involved in a brutal altercation on Ocean Drive around 3:00AM, outside of the Betsey Hotel.

Two men say they were sitting in front of the hotel waiting for their Uber when the trouble started.

According to a victim named Tyree Jenkins, the men started calling him gay, before launching their attack on Jenkins and his female friend.

"The two friends that were with him, they all came over and started jumping me,” Tyree Jenkins said. “I turn around, and I see my best friend, and she gets hit in the face by one of the guys. She hits one of the column out in front of the hotel, and then she hits the ground.”

“It looked like a murder scene,” Tyree Jenkins claimed. “That’s how much blood there was.”

The arrest is the latest news out of Miami surrounding several high-profile acts of violence during the world's biggest hip-hop festival.

Someone shot up Young Thug's tour buses as they drove down i-95 and Lil Wayne canceled his performance over the heavy police presence.

Kodak Black was arrested by cops and hit with weapons charges, while PRE rapper Key Glock was arrested also busted with weed and guns.
