Rapper Jim Jones has rejected a plea deal that would have required 10 days of community service for allegedly attacking a rival recording artist's friend.

Jones, 32, was charged with misdemeanor assault after a fight with Javon Smith inside a Louis Vuitton store on East 57th Street. Smith was with R&B singer-rapper Ne-Yo Smith.

Defense lawyer Scott Leemon called the case "a setup for a civil lawsuit" and payday for Javon Smith.

Leemon says witnesses reported Jones did not start the fight and is innocent.
