UFC Champion Jon Jones Arrested on Suspicion of DUI

UFC lightweight champion Jon Jones was arrested early Saturday morning on suspicion of DUI. The incident was first reported by TMZ and later confirmed by Jones’ manager. TMZ first reported that Jones totaled his car after crashing into a pole around 5 a.m. in New York.

Jones’ manager, Malki Kawa, said via Yahoo! Sports:

“I can confirm that Jon Jones was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI,” Kawa said in a statement to MMAWeekly.com. “While the facts of this situation are still being gathered and situated, First Round Management fully supports Jon and we are asking for fans and media to respect the privacy of Jon and his family during this time.”

Jones of course is coming off of his win over Rashad Evans at UFC 145. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I really don’t understand these celebrities and athletes — who can afford a cab fare — who insist on driving intoxicated. Assuming Jones did actually crash into a pole, he is very lucky to be alive. It should be noted that Jones’ mother bailed him out of jail.
