Police: Jermaine Jones Should NOT Have Been Kicked Off 'American Idol'

Jermaine’s elimination was an ‘outrage,’ according to authorities. Do you think producers just did it to boost ratings?

American Idol finalist Jermaine Jones was cruelly ejected from the competition this week for not revealing he had outstanding warrants in New Jersey, and now the police involved in his case are now speaking out — in his favor! Police Lt. Christopher Jones tells the New York Post that Jermaine’s crimes weren’t serious enough to go after him for, reinforcing the idea that the whole thing was done simply for ratings.

“For the producers of the billion-dollar show to expose, embarrass and interrogate a young man without an attorney in front of 40 million viewers was an outrage,” adds Camden County Freeholder Jeffrey Nash.

In case you need a refresher on Jermaine’s legal history, he was arrested twice last year, and he gave police a false name when confronted about a motel fight — for which he was never even charged.

Now that this new information has come to light, how do YOU feel about Jermaine’s elimination? Do you think producers were right to let him go, or was his ousting merely a ratings ploy? Hit up the comments section with your thoughts below.

I was personally glad to see Jermaine go, I was DEF not a fan of his from the start. He just appalled me by acting like he was so kind and gentle and how he tried to live up to the nickname they gave him as “The gentle giant!” he showed his true color when the cowboy guy smacked him, you could see how truly “out there” he really was. Jermaine chose to lie to American Idol and as lies always do, they caught up to him.. I was very glad to see him go, I thought he was the worst one!!!!
