Ousted and reinstated State Representative Jim Jones (D-Tn.) has made headlines over the last week as people valorized the three Tennessee State Representatives who were expelled from the legislature after storming the capitol during pro-LGBT protests.
Jones was reinstated after national backlash against the expulsion from Democrats and even some Republicans, but past media reports indicate that he has been unruly and disrespectful to other House members in his short tenure in the legislature.
Now, a video has surfaced from 2020 Black Lives Matter protests outside of the Tennessee capitol in Nashville that show him engaging in unlawful and violent behavior towards passers by.
One images shows Jones standing on top of a car surrounded by other protesters.
Another shows him attacking a driver with a traffic cone as the person was driving down the street.

The District Attorney at the time reportedly secretly convened a grand jury and Jones was indicted on two counts of reckless endangerment, but was ultimately acquitted.
The Daily Mail Reports-
Reinstated Tennessee lawmaker Justin Jones is seen in unearthed surveillance video hitting a driver with a traffic cone amid a June 2020 Black Lives Matter protest outside the state capitol.
At the time, Jones, now 27, faced a series of charges after District Attorney Glenn Funk secretly went to the grand jury in an attempt to indict him for participating in the protests in an ‘aggravating’ manner.
Jones claimed in 2021 that his participation in the protests was non-violent and referred to the charges, that were later dropped, as ‘dramatic’ retaliation.
Jones has continued his activism as an elected official, and was recently expelled from the legislature for his gun control protest on the House floor following the Covenant School shooting that left six dead. He and another lawmaker were reinstated days later.
In the street surveillance footage from 2020, Jones appeared to be standing with a small group of six people while obstructing traffic at the state capitol.
Jones was seen grabbing onto a traffic cone and jabbing the driver as the driver then tried to evade the group, including the people standing in front of his car.
