The complaint says Jones was pulled over in Jackson on a traffic stop and found to be in possession of a handgun.
It alleges Jones should be arrested on the federal offense of being in possession of a firearm by a person under indictment.
Prosecutors argue Jones should have been given a higher bond, claiming he is a threat to the public.
Jones is set to appear before a judge Wednesday afternoon. He faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine for the weapon charge.
