    Jon Jones getting off easy, should have put his ass in jail for what he did, but he’s hot so its ok

    • CanILive says:

      lol what DWI gets put in jail????? especially a first time offense?? its always a fine(s) and suspended license and classes on alcohol….

      • Xaninho says:

        That wasn’t me. It’s the loser trying to be me.

      • Jam Master T says:

        state of new york on your first offense for DWI can come with 1 year in jail. Especially if you get into a wreck or drive into a pole.

        Soooooo yea he got off better than any one of us would.

        • Bob says:

          You dumb fuck that is that maximum penalty.. They never give a first offender the Maximum penalty.. You idiots dont know shit.

          He didnt get off easy..

          The “Maximum” penalty is always there to scare you, they never give it to anyone unless the Judge is a complete dick and hates you!!!

          Now STFU, he got what any average person would have got.

          You idiots need to grow a brain.

        • DoesnotMatter says:

          In some states DWI or DUI, First time or not It’s an Automatic Jail time with License taken away for a year penalty… Every state has their own laws…

        • 757 says:

          you must know from experience. You must have read that when you were staying in your house on your little computer you loser. You and your Mike B should exchange resumes to impress each other except yours is better you are a legal expert to ha ha …..

        • I got a DWI once and I got pretty much exactly what he did and I’m not famous nor was I put in jail.

  2. Woah says:

    I was at that party…

  3. Michael hamlin says:

    Yep he got off just like all the rich people !!!

    • Michael you dumbass says:

      jones received standard punishment. you being poor has nothing to do with others being rich. you just dumb. now get off that public library computer and go study.

      • Miguel Estupido says:

        Stuck the knife in with the poor comment and twisted it with the public library computer line. Well done. But seriously though, this is pretty standard for a DWI offense.

        Over 6 grand in restitution, another thousand for the fine, whatever it’s going to cost to have the ignition interlocks put on, legal fees, plus the insurance costs and fees to the state that go along with having a DWI and a suspended license…if that’s getting off easy, I’d like to see what Michael thinks they do to a “normal” person.

        • actually says:

          that’s what a rich person sentence is. IF you can afford it. So yeah, he did get off easy compared to an average citizen who can’t come up with nearly ten thousand dollars would be forced to do. Which (coming from a city prosecutor) is often times jail.

        • I’m not rich and I got what he did for my first and only offense so how did he get off easy?

    • He got what all first time offenders get. Stop lying.

  4. V says:

    not a fuck was given

  5. ballsackface says:

    lol he looks wasted in the mugshot

  6. Jon jones says:

    It happens.. Go on live your life. Let others talk about it.That’s the only thing they can do.

  7. A.James says:

    Shit happens. He fucked up. He’s a mortal after all. Forget about it. Move forward.

  8. Jon jones loves dick says:

    I wish he died

  9. Blake Harris says:

    Jon, Jon, Jon. See this upsets me, for a person that is so critical on weed smokers, and use to rat them out, he can’t even keep himself from a drunk driving accident? But I guess killing someone on the road is far worse than enhancing every aspect of reality.

    p.s. Still a bawlin ass fighter though

  10. DoesntMatter says:

    In some states any DWI or DUI first time or not is automatic Jail time…

  11. John Smith says:

    Yeah people make mistakes, yeah nothing happened this time but when people keep hearing “oh yeah dude I got off with just a fine and I cant drive myself for a little bit” theres no fear to stop them from doing it themselves and not everyone will end up being lucky enough to only hit a pole. I dont know what the answer is (and I dont mind Jones this is against any who DWI/DUI) but unless you scare people they’ll keep thinking they can get away with being too selfish to call a cab or get someone to drive them

  12. jon says:

    I know it seems harsh to say but his title should be in jeopardy, I personally like jon jones but a business perspective he is a face of one of the biggest sports around at the moment, his outside antics are as much play as the inside the octagon antics. But again 1st time probably the only time….at least a probation period with the UFC should come…just keep a closer eye on him.
