Uber needs to sign Jon Jones (pictured) to an endorsement deal, ASAP. If there ever was a poster child for someone who shouldn’t be behind the wheel, it’s Jones.
Last week, Jones was cited for drag racing, exhibition driving, weaving, failing to properly display his license, and modifying his exhaust pipe on his Corvette in New Mexico at around midnight. The officer’s camera vest recorded his conversation with an irate Jones, and it’s not pretty.
Jones denied drag racing, calling the “pig” a “despicable” “f**king liar.”
Jones was cited just last month in Albuquerque for driving without a license, registration and insurance. Thankfully for the former UFC light heavyweight champion, he had all of his information this time around.
It is unknown how these five tickets will affect Jones’ probation if found guilty.
Oh yeah, about that…
Jones was arrested last April for felony hit-and-run after causing a three-car accident and bolting from the scene where a pregnant motorist suffered a broken arm. The UFC suspended Jones and stripped him of his title after the incident.
Five months after Jones’ latest legal setback, he 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.
After each incident, the 28-year-old claimed to have learned from the unfortunate experience and emerged a better man.
Jones looks to reclaim his light heavyweight crown against Daniel Cormier on April 23 at UFC 197.
