Jordan Jones, Great-Granddaughter Of Orville Redenbacher, Arrested For Drunk Driving

The great-granddaughter of popcorn legend Orville Redenbacher was arrested Sunday for allegedly hitting a police officer and nurses after they responded to her 911 call.

Jones, 22, was denied a public defender and given a $7,500 bond after she revealed in court that her college tuition is paid for with a trust fund from Redenbacher, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jone was arrested around 4:15 a.m. on Sunday in Valparaiso, Ind. Police initially responded because her 2003 Pontiac Sunfire was stuck on train tracks. She called police because she was locked out of her car, according to the New York Daily News. Instead, Jones was reportedly arrested for drunk driving.

When Jones was placed in the back of a squad car, police said she knocked herself out by repeatedly bashing her head against the cage between the front and back seats. It reportedly took eight people to restrain her at a hospital to give her stitches, as she struck nurses and police officers.

Jones faces four felony and seven misdemeanor charges: felony counts include battery, resisting law enforcement and two counts of battery by bodily waste, while misdemeanor charges include battery, criminal mischief, drunk driving and disorderly conduct, according to CBS Chicago.

Jones' blood alcohol content was triple the legal limit to drive, according to the Daily News. She is currently being held in Porter County Jail, where she has been since the accident.

Six months ago, a statue was erected in Valparaiso to commemorate Redenbacher, who passed away in 1995.
