Rapper Jim Jones has settled charges relating to a casino arrest in February (12) by agreeing to pay a $1,000 (£625) fine.

The Diplomats member was taken into custody after he was allegedly involved in fight at the MGM Grand in Connecticut following a party hosted by Sean 'Diddy' Combs.

Jones was charged with breach of peace and inciting a riot - claims he denied - but he managed to reach a plea deal with prosecutors and the case returned to court on Tuesday (02Oct12).

During the hearing, the hip-hop star accepted guilt for a charge of interfering with a police officer in exchange for authorities dropping the other two misdemeanours, reports Tmz.com.

Jones was fined and the case was officially closed.
