UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was charged under DWI and illegal possession of firearms.

The entire incident went down on Thursday when police officers from Alberquerque Police Department pulled behind Jones’ car at 1 am in the night after hearing gunshots.

When police officers approached Jones’ car, he had a quarter-full bottle of Recuerdo behind the seat. He also had a fully loaded gun inside the driver’s seat. His blood alcohol limit was twice the normal limit.

Jon Jones arrested

Surprisingly despite being a multiple-time offender, Jones was able to escape the jail sentence. Instead, he entered a plea deal that subjected him to four-days of house arrest. As per TMZ, Jon Jones will serve one year of supervised probation, a minimum 90 days of outpatient therapy and 48 hours of community service.

Violation of plea agreement will result in Jon Jones being sentenced to prison

Jon Jones has to strictly adhere to these plea agreements. Violation of any plea agreement will result in a jail sentence as per the Bernalillo (N.M.) District Attorney.

Jon Jones pleaded guilty to his second DWI. The incident happened on March 26, 2020 outside a downtown Albuquerque nightclub, just two months after his probation ended following an incident at an Albuquerque strip club. Jones took responsibility for his actions early on in the case and in doing so the state agreed to 1 year supervised probation,” the statement from the Bernalillo District Attorney read. “Normally, the State would be requesting a pre-sentencing report and a recommendation to Substance Recovery Court. However, due to COVID-19, it is not clear the program can accept anyone at this time.

It is also the reason that we are agreeing to the 4 days on CCP with 90 days for turn-in (the metropolitan jail just reported a new case of COVID-19). Jones is still required to complete a minimum of 90 day outpatient treatment, maximum fines and fees, community service, and all other requirements of reporting to probation. His attorney and Mr. Jones have been made aware that if he fails to do this, the State will seek to impose the balance of any jail time without regard for any exceptional circumstances.”
