Jon Jones UFC Champ Arrested!
Jon Jones is making headlines once again, but this time around they are not the type of headlines that he would like to have publisized.
UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon “Bones” Jones was arrested yesterday for DUI after he totaled his Bentley.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the champ was involved in an accident at around 5:00 AM in Binghamton, NY. It is said that the car that Jones was driving is now a total loss. Jones was arrested on the scene for DUI, and it is unknown what type of injuries if any he sustained.
Jones was taken into custody by Broome County Sheriff and bailed out only a few hours later. Who might you think came to his rescue? Non other that his beloved mother, wonder if she gave him a speech right afterwards?
As many know Jones is not the type of person to get into trouble and he really is close to his mother.
Now here is the kicker Jones filmed a video earlier this year about going through police training, with the Broome County Sheriff, the same agency that arrested him!
Jones’s manager, Malki Kawa, released a statement saying, “I can confirm that Jon Jones was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. While the facts of this situation are still being gathered and situated, First Round Management fully supports Jon, and we are asking for fans and media to respect the privacy of Jon and his family during this time.”
Via text, UFC prez Dana White tells TMZ, “Wow, i guess its not my week is it?”
We’ll see if this has any type of affect on Jones’ upcoming fight with Dan Henderson, but I must say that I really did not expect this form Jones. But hey the guy is human.
