Jon Jones arrested for DUI

Figured this was big enough news to get its own thread

http://www.mmamania.com/2012/5/19/30...ar-into-a-pole

Quote:
Remember that sweet Bentley Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was riding around in that reportedly cost $190,000 (pic after the jump)? Yeah, it's been totaled.

That's because "Bones" crashed it into a pole in the early morning hours today (Sat., May 19, 2012) in Binghamton, New York. But that's not even the worst part.

Once police arrived on the scene, Jones was arrested for driving under the influence.
Pretty serious stuff. First and foremost I'm glad no one was hurt, but you have to wonder what kind of implications this has for the UFC as well. Certainly Dana's life didn't get any easier today.

Just makes me like him less. For anyone questioning it, his manager already came out and confirmed he was arrested on suspicion of a DUI. So does this mean Hendo has to wait even longer for his title shot?

What a fool. Seems this'll be somewhat damaging to his talk of being such a great role model.

We came up with a strategy to keep it clean and be sponsored by the UFC itself. Im glad the UFC wanted to work with me as well, and I think that they trust that Ill never make them look bad. You never have to worry about me with a DWI (driving while under the influence) or doing something crazy, Jones explained.
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh snap

I don't believe it, I'm just assuming Ricco Rodriguez was driving and switched seats with Jones.

Dumb move by Jones, hopefully nobody was hurt and his fight is still a go.

Stupidity on his part, hopefully no one is hurt.

This will hurt his "I don't do anything wrong" mentality.

Ross Pearson got a DUI and he didn't lose his scheduled fight, so I don't think the title fight with Hendo is in any jeopardy. No question it makes the UFC look bad, but athletes get DUIs all the time, so I think the general public is pretty used to this sort of thing by now.

They already tried to make a Brazilian with poor english the face of the UFC in Anderson Silva and it didn't work out too well.

I think people would be more concerned about the fight being in jeopardy because of injury, not from the actual DUI.

Plus, there's no 'face' of the UFC. Guys get hurt, guys lose, guys get DUI's. Can't pin your hope on one guy.

It looks like the Real Jon Jones is starting to emerge.

If EliteXC taught us anything ...

Article I just read references a Rampage Jackson DUI in 2008 that I never heard about before now, which suggests this won't be that big a deal. Unless Jones ends up with a jail sentence, this should blow over with nothing more than personal inconvenience / expense for Jones. Glad he didn't hurt anyone.

You didn't hear about this DUI?



Granted a woman alledgedly had a miscarriage after he ran into her vehicle and he led the cops on a high-speed chase (in a monster truck with his name and picture on the side...)

I think people are missing the point here. Forget about his next fight, if you are drunk enough to drive into a pole, you are drunk enough to ill somebody. I used to think little of Jon Jones haters, but this brain dead move is deserving of all of the hate in the world.

Wow. I liked him a lot for being real (especially being true to his faith in God) but this is ridiuclous. I like to drink too, but I will never enter a vehicle with any alcohol in my system.

Mad respect lost for Bones Jones. You could have killed someone, *******.

Really? He seems quite fake to me even before this.
