Jim Jones has been arrested twice in three days after being caught driving on a suspended license in Manhattan on Monday.

The 35-year-old renowned hip hop artist was stopped by police outside of the Grant Houses in Harlem, on W. 125th St. near Amsterdam Ave after they noticed that Jones' 2011 Audi was missing its front license plates, according to the New York Post.

Though he was released just after 3:20 p.m., the "We Fly High" rapper was issued a desk appearance ticket which means that he may be forced to return to court at a later date.

This was Jones' second run in with law enforcement in just three days, following his Friday night arrest at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut after a brawl erupted at an event that was hosted by Hip Hop mogul, Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Police reportedly used mace to restrain Jones, and charged him with resisting arrest and breach of the peace after allegedly assaulting an officer, according to the New York Daily News.

According to sources, Jones tried to ignore a drunk man who unexpectedly began screaming profanities at him, but when the man punched Jones in the face a brawl broke out and escalated with friends from both sides also jumping in.

The incident was caught on video and an irate Jones is seen being restrained by officers and at one point even being tackled and maced.

Jones was immediately taken into custody where he was later released on bond.

Although his fiancée, Chrissy Lampkin, from VH1's "Love and Hip Hop" was not spotted in any of the brawl footage, sources say that she was not far.

A source close to Jones insists that the rapper's second arrest was simply a misunderstand claiming that "Jim does not have a suspended license," according to TMZ.

"It'll all be thrown out," the source added.
