Last month, Jon Jones was pulled over and given 5 tickets by a police officer who accused the pound for pound kingpin of drag racing, in addition to numerous other things.

Jones ultimately turned himself in to police the next day and spent the next 3 days in jail leading up to a hearing, where he was cleared to be released. Jones returned to training for his UFC 197 rematch with Daniel Cormier, however DC ultimately pulled out of the fight and was replaced by Ovince Saint Preux for an interim light heavyweight title fight.

In the video above, you can see Jones discussing his brief jail stint, as well as how easy it was for him to get sober.
