EXCLUSIVE: Charleston Mayor speaks out about son's arrest

Posted: Updated:

Charleston Mayor Danny Jones opens up to Decision Makers host Bray Cary about his son Zachary Jones.

The 23-year-old son of Charleston Mayor Danny Jones, was arrested the morning of March 7th for possession with intent to deliver an ounce of cocaine.

Jones was arrested along with 24-year-old Moldavian Harris, of Detroit. The two were taken to the South Central Regional Jail on $25,000 bond.

Danny Jones released a statement saying: "It may surprise many to know that I was relieved when I found out Zac was arrested, because I know that the only things that might save his life are isolation and yes, incarceration. If in jail or prison, I know that Zac has a better chance at living than on the outside. This is because Zac is a hopeless drug addict who has broken the heart and the will of everyone and anyone who has tried to help him."
