UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested Saturday for suspicion of DUI after driving his Bentley into a telephone pole in Binghamton, NY. Jones is hardly the first MMA star to be arrested for DUI/DWI but he’s probably the first to total a Bentley while doing it.
Jones’ fiasco made the local news with WBNG airing video from the scene on their evening news broadcast. That video is after the jump.
Jones has defended his UFC belt three times since defeating Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 128 claim the title. He’s since beaten Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans in title contests. He is expected to next face Dan Henderson in late Summer or early Fall.
There are no indications that Jones was injured in the wreck but it’s entirely possible that he was and that could potentially delay his next title defense.
