Michigan Democrat Arrested For Drunk Driving Refuses To Have Photo Taken Without Mask (VIDEO)

Michigan Democrat Rep. Jewell Jones was arrested for drunk driving this week after crashing his car.

As if that isn’t embarrassing enough, Jones was then filmed refusing to have his photo taken by police without his mask on.

In the video below, he argues with the police and brings up Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a thinly veiled threat to the cops.

‘Big Gretch is the homie’: Rep. Jewell Jones refuses to take jail photo because he can’t wear mask

Video from inside the Livingston County Jail after Rep. Jewell Jones was arrested shows the lawmaker arguing with authorities and refusing to take an intake photo because he can’t wear a mask.

Jones, 26, was arrested April 6 after he allegedly crashed his SUV while drunk.

He can be heard repeatedly asking to see the regulations that specify whether or not he needs to wear a mask when having his photo taken. When told that he can’t wear a mask in the photo, he says that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said masks have to be worn.

“Believe me, the governor knows about this right now,” a sheriff replies.

“They know about this?” Jones says.

When the sheriff says yes and tells Jones everything is being recorded, he mumbles about calling “Gretchen.” Jones was also heard telling police he was going to call the governor during his arrest on the side of I-96.

“No, Gretchen called us bud,” the sheriff says.

Here’s the video:

What an embarrassing situation.
