In December 2003, arbitrator Roger Kaplan ruled that Jones violated National Football League Players Association regulations in his financial dealings with NFL player Ebenezer Ekuban. Jones received a two-year suspension, prohibiting him from representing NFL players until February 26, 2005.[1] Jones later sued Ekuban and his attorney for slander and libel leading to Ekuban declaring bankruptcy in 2003. Former player Cris Dishman won a $396,000 judgment against Jones involving a bad investment.[1] Jones later counter sued Cris Dishman and his former wife Karen Dishman, the previous matter was declared settled and Jones received a money judgment against both Cris and Karen Dishman in 2006 for their part in illegally trying to extort more money from Jones.


On June 14, 2007, he was arrested by the FBI on charges of mortgage fraud in a 42 million dollar scheme to rip off three Houston area banks.[1] Bond is set at $100,000. Trial date was set for August 6, 2007.


On May, 2008 charges were dismissed by the Government.
