This Day in History: 1982-03-30

George Jones was arrested and charged with drunken driving after he wrecked his 1981 Lincoln while driving home in Mississippi. The accident happened on a country road about 10 miles from the Alabama – Mississippi state line. Just 24 hours earlier Jones and his fiancee Nancy Ford Sepulvada were stopped near Jackson and state narcotics officers said they found a ‘small amount’ of white substance in his car.
