Carey Lynn Claypool, Mother of Angus T. Jones

Carey Lynn Claypool

Carey Lynn Claypool is the mother of former American actor, Angus T. Jones. Carey Lynn Claypool and her husband Kelly Charles Jones gave birth to Angus on October 8, 1993, in Austin.

They also welcomed their second son, Otto Jones, in Austin, Texas.

Carey Lynn and Kelly Jones, unlike other actors’ parents, stayed out of the spotlight during their son’s ascent to prominence in the great hit US sitcom.

Their low profile was due to their prior criminal convictions. They were shockingly well known to law enforcement in their hometown of Austin, Texas.

Criminal History in The Family

Carey was jailed in 1992 after pulling the meter from a cab and hitting a cop in the face on the way to jail.

Five years later, a woman found Carey Lynn in her living room wearing her live-in boyfriend’s shorts when she woke up at 4 a.m. She was then detained on a bizarre burglary charge.

Kelly, her spouse, was arrested in 1986 for marijuana possession and carrying an unauthorized 45-caliber firearm outside an Austin, Texas pub.

Carey also had her husband Kelly arrested on an assault charge after he allegedly yanked her out of a car and pushed her to the ground.

The allegation against her was later dropped, but Kelly Jones was required to complete an anti-violence program.

According to the National Enquirer, her brother-in-law, Eric Eugene Claypool, was convicted in 1995 of shooting a guy he claimed sexually abused him as a youngster and is currently serving a 99-year jail sentence in Texas.

Even the mug shots from the arrest in 1997 have surfaced. Despite his family’s criminal behavior, Angus T. Jones has been a big success.
