RARE VIDEO OF JON ‘BONES’ JONES GRAPPLING BEFORE THE FAME OF THE UFC AND THE DRAMA OF HIS RECENT ARREST.
JON ‘BONES’ JONES STRIPPED OF UFC TITLE AFTER HIS ARREST IN HIT AND RUN!
It is always sad when those with great talent choose to ruin it through drug/alcohol abuse. Although the verdict is still out on the specifics of the crash Jones was involved in, it looks like a open and shut case. The Mixed martial arts champion Jon “Bones” Jones was stripped of his Ultimate Fighting Championship title and suspended indefinitely Tuesday, after being arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident that injured a pregnant woman in New Mexico.
Police said in an arrest warrant that a 30-year-old pregnant woman suffered an injury to her arm after Jones allegedly crashed his silver Buick sport utility vehicle into her red Honda Sunday morning, and Jones allegedly fled on foot towards a gated community.
A witness to the crash said after the SUV slammed into the driver’s side of the Honda, a man later identified as Jones ran up a dirt hill, then ran back “to retrieve cash from the vehicle and shoved it into his pockets,” before running off into a gated community, according to the warrant.
An off-duty police officer who happened upon the crash saw the driver of the SUV and recognized Jones immediately, because, “I watch UFC all the time, I know what Jon Jones looks like,” the warrant said.
Officers found a pipe with marijuana in the SUV as well as MMA and rental car documents in Jones’ name, according to the police report.
It looks like 27yr old Jones wont get to meet Anthony Johnson in the UFC 187 which had been scheduled. Instead Jones will have to take some time off and deal with the repercussions of his actions. Let’s take a trip back in time to when the young superstar was just a bleep on the worlds radar before the fame and trouble that comes with excess.
