Jones being Jones 

Post#1 » by Jasen777 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 4:53 pm

UFC champion Jon Jones arrested for aggravated DWI, negligent use of firearm in Albuquerque

Jones was arrested for aggravated DWI (driving while intoxicated) as well as negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container and driving with no proof of insurance.

Calls to Jones’ management team for comment were not returned.

According to the criminal complaint first reported by KOAT in Albuquerque, officers responded to gunshots and they found Jones in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. He claimed he didn’t know anything about the gunshots fired.

Officers noticed that Jones seemed intoxicated and he admitted to officers that he had been driving earlier that night and intended to drive again. Jones submitted to sobriety tests and performed poorly on all of them.

He later took a breathalyzer test and results returned at or above twice the legal limit.

After Jones was arrested, a black handgun was found underneath the driver’s seat along with a bottle of Recuerdo behind the passenger’s seat.


So they responded to gun shots, and when they got there, Jones was sitting there drunk in his car with the engine on along with a handgun and a bottle of booze. LOL.

What a shame, he might be the most talented fighter ever but he's also the most frustrating. Not even a pandemic can stop this guy from going out and partying. You'd think with all the money he has he could stay at home in his mansion and drink like there's no tomorrow. Oh well :noway:

Or not.

Dana for sure would love to spin this as just an aberrant hiccup not characteristic of 'the new Jon Jones.' He could also just yank his belt for an inconsequential amount of time (~6-12mos), allowing Jones to come right back and recapture it soon enough.

As for the New Mexico authorities, not sure how that'll go, but they do have a track record of letting him off pretty lightly, considering.

If there's a tragedy here, it's that even though Jones has arguably lost three times (Gus I, Santos, Reyes), we may never get to see him smashed by his kryptonite, such as Rumble Johnson or someone like that.

This doesn't sound like Jon. He's innocent.
The Bulls have one the three worst owners and one of the five worst front offices in the league. So strap on your seat belts because this "rebuild" is going to be one very long ride.

"Jon's warning shots were merely attempts to encourage social distancing"

"The alcohol was to kill the virus."

Just say it's not their job to punish him, it's the court system's.
