Last week in New Mexico, US, “Bones” was pulled over by police officers who noticed he’s not speaking fluidly. Jones was drink driving as the police found a gun under his seat.
The fighter has pled guilty on the DWI charges, as he won’t be doing any jail time. He will have to do 96 hours of community custody. Plus, one year of administered probation, and a minimum of 90 days of outpatient therapy. Furthermore, Jones would have to complete 48 hours of community service. Jon has made his first official statement since the DWI and has promised to work on his alcohol problem.
“While we all work to understand and cope with stress and uncertainties surrounding the current state of our world, I want to express how truly disappointed I am that I have become the source of a negative headline again, especially during these trying times,” Jones said. “I am disappointed for letting down the people I care about the most – my family, friends and my fans. This morning I entered into a plea deal with the Albuquerque DA’s office. accept full responsibility for my actions. and, I know that I have some personal work to do to which involves the unhealthy relationship I have with alcohol.
“I’ve dedicated so much time and energy to improve my community, and I will not allow this personal setback to hinder my work within the community when we need it most. I truly appreciate the support I have received from the community of Albuquerque and all my fans around the world. i very much look forward to putting this behind me. Thank you all for your continued love and support and please take care of yourselves.”
