Somebody call Jon Jones (pictured) an Uber, because Jones and driving simply don’t mix.
According to KRQE News 13, Jones was cited by the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department on January 31 for driving without a license, registration and insurance. Jones is due in traffic court Wednesday to address his latest charges.
Of course, this isn’t Jones’ first incident behind the wheel. In April, the troubled 28-year-old was arrested for felony hit-and-run after a late night of partying. A pregnant motorist suffered a broken arm in the incident.
The UFC immediately stripped Jones of his light heavyweight title and temporary suspended him.
Five months after the arrest, Jones reached a plea agreement to avoid any jail time. The judge granted Jones a conditional discharge and placed him on supervised probation for up to 18 months.
Jones was also ordered to make 72 appearances for charity or youth outreach, which he has been boasting about on his various social media accounts over the past months.
The UFC reinstated Jones in October.
In May 2012, Jones was arrested for driving while intoxicated in New York after wrapping his $190,000 Bentley around a telephone pole. After pleading guilty, Jones was fined $1,000 and had his driver’s license suspended for six months.
A year before that, Jones was picked up in Albuquerque for driving on a suspended license.
Oddly, Jones’ latest run-in with the law came exactly one week before the UFC officially announced he’ll get the chance to reclaim his throne from champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 197.
No word on how this violation might affect Jones’ probation status.
