According to Boston 25, Patriots cornerback Jack Jones was arrested Friday evening at Boston Logan International Airport after attempting to bring two firearms on the plane.

The two  firearms were found when Jones tried to bring his carry-on luggage through an airport security checkpoint around 5:20 p.m., according to the TSA. Massachusetts State Police were called to the scene and arrested Jones.

Jones was booked at the state police barracks at Logan. He is facing several charges including possession of a concealed weapon in a secure area of an airport, possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, and possession of a large-capacity feeding device, according to police.

Jones was drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round (121st overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft.

The team is aware of the situation and released a statement this evening.

“We have been notified that Jack Jones was arrested at Logan Airport earlier today. We are in the process of gathering more information and will not be commenting further at this time,” according to a spokesperson for the Patriots.

Ironically enough, Jones chimed in in Ja Morant’s recent gun troubles last month on Twitter.

Now it appears Jones has gun problems of his own and his roster spot with the Patriots is in jeopardy. I guess he should have heeded his own advice.

This is a developing story so we will have more in the coming days.
