FAIR LAWN, N.J. —

Rapper Jim Jones has been arrested after allegedly becoming belligerent with police in the New Jersey town where he lives.

NorthJersey.com reports ( http://bit.ly/Z0nZxm) Jones was charged Wednesday in Fair Lawn with disorderly conduct and hindering apprehension.

It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

Police say they were questioning Jones about a ticketed vehicle they were trying to tow. Jones agreed to pay the fee but allegedly became upset when questioned about prior warrants for failing to shovel a sidewalk and failing to yield to an emergency vehicle.

He posted bail on the warrants and has a Feb. 27 court date.

The 37-year-old hip-hop artist is one of the Diplomats, a New York-based rap crew. His rap "We Fly High" was one of 2007's top-selling tracks.
