The latest incident was Jones's third run-in with law enforcement. In 2008, he was arrested after crashing his car in the South Hills while driving under the influence. His blood alcohol level in that incident was .122. He pleaded guilty in 2010 and was fined $100 plus court costs.
In 2011, he was arrested again on charges of misdemeanor possession of heroin after police responded to complaints of drug activity at a Leslie Road home. Jones allowed police to enter the home and informed police of the presence of the illegal substance.
In previous interviews, Danny Jones has expressed support for the police department and has asked officials to treat his son as they would anyone else."It may surprise many to know that I was relieved when I found out Zac was arrested, because I know that the only things that might save his life are isolation and yes, incarceration," Danny Jones said in a statement at the time of his son's arrest.
