Default Jon Jones arrested for DUI

UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon "Bones" Jones was arrested early this morning for DUI after he totaled his Bentley in upstate New York ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jones was involved in an accident at around 5:00 AM in Binghamton, NY. We're told the car -- which Jones crashed into a pole -- was totaled and cops arrested Jones on the scene for DUI.

According to our sources, Jones was taken into custody by Broome County Sheriff and bailed out a few hours later ... by his mom. Jones is from nearby Ithaca.

Jones last fought on April 21, defeating Rashad Evans by unanimous decision. His next scheduled fight is on September 1 in Las Vegas against Dan Henderson.
Apparently his manager confirmed this as well.

Damn, that sucks! Hope he's OK. Sounds like he partied too hardy & made a really stupid decision.

I'm glad he didn't kill anybody.

I have a young cousin-in-law who made the same stupid deadly decision, he ended up killing a 16-yr. old girl. I was in court last August when the judge sentenced him to prison. Sitting there listening as her mom and dad and little sister each got up to speak about their daughter and big sister was gut-wrenching! Her mom described what her daughter looked like when they were allowed to go into the room to see her, lying dead. It was awful.

I saw this update when I looked at the link:

Quote:
Jones's manager, Malki Kawa, released a statement saying, "I can confirm that Jon Jones was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. 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."

Via text, UFC prez Dana White tells TMZ, "Wow, i guess its not my week is it?"
Why did Dana say that? What else has happened this week?

Dana had surgery and missed the fights. It's the first time in like 11 years or something that he's missed a fight night.

Oh, that's too bad. Like Bonnie said, good thing he didn't kill someone (or himself). I hope he learns from this.
