Jon Jones remains on probation for his stint with the law when he left the scene of an accident in 2015. Jones was last arrested in March for violating his probation after receiving traffic violations in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

With Jones’ recent potential USADA violation, TMZ reports that “a rep for the Bernalillo County DA’s Office says the Corrections Department (who oversees Jones’ probation) has decided not to pursue a violation because his sample wasn’t collected by them or the court.”

TMZ also reports that the substance Jones tested positive for is not typical of violating a supervised probation.

USADA, the UFC, and Jones’ team are still going through the motions of Jones’ case and could face a two-year suspension from fighting in the UFC.
