Jermaine Jones who was to appear in the Final 12 show of American Idol has five active arrest warrants. The Smoking Gun website has made this revelation. Why would someone with five active arrest warrants hide from police, by appearing on a show drawing 15 million viewers a week? Only Jermaine Jones could answer that question.
American Idol has a history of contestants who withheld information from the show and later were dismissed from the show, when their information became public knowledge.
There have also been reports that Jones caused problems with American Idol staff, when he disagreed with their wardrobe choices.
