Michigan state Rep. Jewell Jones (D) repeatedly argued with jail personnel after his drunk driving arrest earlier this month, demanding to wear a mask for his mugshot.
Michigan State Police arrested Jones on April 6 in Livingston County after witnesses said he was driving erratically and assaulted paramedics.
The state representative resisted arrest and demanded to speak to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) during the ordeal.
New video shows Jones demanding to wear a mask for his photo while in the jail, citing Whitmer’s ongoing coronavirus lockdown orders:
