Best Local Celebrity: Vernon Jones

Staff Pick

He’s known for his police-escort posse, designer-label suits and a jet-setting lifestyle that included a secret junket to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. It’s alleged that he once threatened a woman with a firearm and has been involved in other unpleasant run-ins with female elected officials. He’s been accused of rape, but his lawyer dismisses the incident as a threesome that ended with hurt feelings. No, we’re not talking about a rock star or professional athlete, but DeKalb County’s head honcho, VERNON JONES. In addressing the rape accusation, Jones’ attorney described the CEO as a “political celebrity.” Who are we to argue?
