UFC heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones was arrested last Wednesday night in Albuquerque for an aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm.
Jones was picked up right after 1 a.m. local time and based on booking information, he’s already been released from custody.
Officers in Albuquerque responded to a call about gunshots being heard and found Jones in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. He claimed he didn’t know anything about the gunshots fired. It was noticed that Jones seemed to be intoxicated and he admitted to he had been driving his vehicle earlier in the night and intended to drive again.
Jones voluntarily took sobriety tests and failed on all of them.
The UFC issued a statement on Jones’ arrest.
