According to reports a cocktail waitress claims Jones “slapped her inappropriately” and “pulled her down to his lap and kissed her neck,” according to the report. The waitress also claims that Jones put her in a choke hold and lifted her upp from the ground. 

James Hallinan, a spokesman for Jones, recently released a statement in regards to the situation. 

“Today, the media told Mr. Jones about a false accusation launched against him and that paperwork had been sent to an incorrect address,” Hallinan said in a statement sent to KRQE 13 News. “However, after receiving the documents from the press, Mr. Jones immediately went to pay the small fee, and he, and multiple witnesses, stand ready to factually refute the malicious lies being told about him to the public.”
