Black Power Ranger Arrested For DUI

Former Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger Walter Jones, aka Black Ranger Zack Taylor, was arrested for DUI on Sundat night (Juyl 26) in Huntsville, Alabama.

TMZ reports Alabama State Troopers in Huntsville cuffed Jones, 38, and booked him into a local jail before Jones eventually met bail and was released.

Via Wiki: Walter was written out of the Power Ranger series midway through the second season, apparently due to disagreements over wages and fee, and was replaced by Johnny Yong Bosch.

    whythe title have to be “Black Power Ranger”

    seriously, racist undertones are taken seriously to jared.

    It should have said ” Former Power ranger star arrested for DUI” we obviously know he played the black one. you didnt have to point it out Jared

    Um..Marissa…that’s because he WAS the “Black” power ranger? …If it were the chick who played Trini, she would have been the “Yellow” Power ranger. Or the guy who played “Tommy” would have been the “Green” and “White” Power ranger…Or even Amy Jo Johnson as the “Pink” Power Ranger. You should direct your anger towards the creators of the Power Rangers…not Jared. Obviously the Power Rangers was some messed up ish.

    Lmao – I think you should change the title, Jared. I don’t think it was written in a racist way though…just might be interpreted in the wrong way by people.

    Wow you people are ridiculous. He played the black power ranger and that’s why he wrote it. He just happens to be black too. Stop being so sensitive.

    When I first read the title I laughed, it’s funny, I dont think its racist at all, out of all the power rangers he was the black one,
    #7 petra, thats just ignorant.

    bonzo Says:

    duh, we can see that he’s black. that’s like saying “male black power ranger”…. more information than necessary unless you’re a nitwit or prejudiced.

    I love how none of you are even talking about he was arrested for the DUI. Anywayyyyyyyyyy he looks very young for almost 40, good for him. He should definitely lay off the booze though if he’s going to be driving.

    How ironic that the black power ranger is actually black.
    He still looks exactly the same…he hasn’t aged at all.

    Josh Says:

    @marissa: They call him the “Black” power ranger because he actually played the black color power ranger! So is anything the show was racist not JJ.

    Guys, i work in that police department. The cop who arrested him was shady, we’re actually investigating him right now. Mr. Jones passed ALL the sobriety tests and still was locked up. I guess a shady cop or not it still got out and an innocent man is getting treated like **** for it

    Ally Says:

    Walter PASSED all of the sobriety tests. He wasn’t drunk at all, he was innocent. I hope the cop that arrested him gets his due.

    Rich N' SMOOTH Says:

    Walter got caught drunk as a skunk after pulling out of a gay bar called OZ. He had a car full of drag queens, and himself was wearing a hot miniskirt and pumps. Seems to have been morphing from a spear chunkin power ranger to a sissy boy on the down low.
