A Friday night party hosted by P. Diddy and celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Foxwoods resort casino in Connecticut ended with a 2 a.m. brawl in the MGM Grand casino's lobby. Hip-hop artist Jim Jones was charged with resisting arrest, breaching the peace, and assaulting a police officer — a state police detective was reportedly being treated for minor injuries. In proper celeb fashion, Jones went on Twitter a few hours later to give his followers the inside scoop, in 140 characters or less: "40k in bonds 1 night had a ball lets see of I can get that 40 back on th crap table wooord."
