Author: Deborah Ross / 2023-04-13 15:49:02A video has surfaced showing Tennessee State Representative Justin Jones allegedly stopping cars and assaulting drivers during the summer of 2020, sparking outrage and calls for his resignation.
Tennessee State Representative Justin Jones has found himself embroiled in controversy after a video emerged showing him allegedly stopping cars and assaulting drivers during the summer of 2020. The video, which has since gone viral, shows Jones standing in front of a car and hitting the driver's side window with a megaphone, while shouting and swearing at the driver.
Jones was recently reinstated as a state representative after being expelled earlier this year following an altercation with Capitol Police. This latest incident has further fueled calls for his resignation, with many politicians and citizens condemning his behavior as unacceptable for an elected official.
Jones has since released a statement apologizing for his actions, stating that he was protesting police brutality and racial injustice at the time of the incident. However, many are not satisfied with his apology and are calling for him to be held accountable for his actions. The situation is still ongoing and it remains to be seen what consequences Jones will face.
