According to a report from ESPNcurrent UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was arrested in New Mexico for an alleged aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm early Thursday morning.

Jones, who was also charged with possession of an open container and no proof of insurance, tested “at or above twice the legal limit” when he was administered a breathalyzer test after he was arrested. He was released from custody later in the day.

According to a criminal complaint, police responded to an area of Alberquerque, just after 1 a.m. in reference to gunshots fired. When they arrived, they found Jones inside his vehicle with the engine on. He told police he did not know anything about the shots fired. The officers noticed signs of intoxication and police say he admitted to officers that he had been driving earlier and had intended to drive.

Jones has said that it is ‘inevitable’ that he will work in WWE someday.

This is not “Bones” first run-in with the law; in August 2017, he tested positive for Turinabol, which is an anabolic steroid, prior to his match with Daniel Cormier.

Editor’s Opinion:

The hits just keep on coming. Pun intended.
