UFC Champ Jon Jones Wanted For Questioning in Hit and Run, UFC 187 Fight In Jeopardy

The UFC light heavyweight champion appears to be in trouble with the law once again. Rumors have been confirmed that Jon Jones was in a car accident and is reportedly wanted for questioning in a Hit and Run in Albuquerque, NM.

This caps a day in which rumors ran rampant about Jon Jones and his involvement in UFC 187. Rumors began circulating early Sunday that something major happened with Jones and he was out of 187. Nothing was confirmed until a few Twitter leaks were confirmed by reporters and respected members of the media.

Alex Goldsmith, a reported for KRQE news in Albuquerque confirmed reports on Sunday night with a tweet.

“APD confirms MMA star Jon Bones Jones is wanted for questioning in connection with a hit and run.”

This is nothing compared to several other rumors that hit Twitter about the accident. None have been confirmed at this time thus it would be unfair to mention them. Yet the idea that Jones would allegedly run from a car accident tells you everything you need to know about the substance (no pun intended) of those rumors.

This is just another dark moment in what appears to be the downward spiral of the UFC champion. Jones tested positive for cocaine metabolites prior to his UFC 182 fight. Jones plead for forgiveness and entered rehab. Jones’ stint in rehab lasted a matter of one day according to several reports.

Jones was also arrested for a DUI back in September 2012. He plead guilty to DUI charges and paid a fine. His license was also suspended for six months.

The next 48 hours of UFC news will be very interesting to watch. Depending upon the circumstances of this incident, it is conceivable that Jones is out of UFC 187. That said, I don’t think the UFC will suspend him for a minute. Any discipline will come from the commission as the UFC tends to default to the commission in these types of situations. The fight is in jeopardy nonetheless.
