Just this past weekend, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol. Shortly after his bail was met by his mother, rumors started to spread that this was not his first run-in with the law. It was later confirmed by the Albuquerque Police Department (to Bloody Elbow) that this, in fact, was not the first time Jones had gotten in trouble behind the wheel as he had another incident on November 24th 2011.
Once again in his black Bentley, Jones first caught the cops attention after speeding around the corner sideways with his tires screeching loudly. After following the speeding Bentley, the cop observed the vehicle had ended up in the parking lot of a full-nude strip club called “Fantasy World”. After the cop talked to the driver who he identified as “Jonathan Jones”, he ran the UFC champion’s driver’s license and confirmed it was suspended. Jones was charged for driving with a suspended license and loss of traction and his car was towed away from the scene. The charges were ultimately dismissed in a March 8th 2011 trial.
From the police report:
On 11/24/11 I observed a black Bentley turn Northbound on Jefferson NE from Westbound McCleod NE. The vehicle came around the corner sideways and tires squealing. The vehicle continued North at a high rate of speed and pulled into the Fantasy World parking lot. I conducted as traffic stop and contacted the driver, identified as Jonathan Jones. I ran Jones drivers license through MVD and it was suspended. I then ran his drivers license through NCIC and they confirmed his it was suspended. Jones was cited for loss of traction and suspended drivers license. Jones vehicle was towed from the scene.
