UFC superstar Jon Jones was arrested for DWI and a gun charge in New Mexico Thursday morning, TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Cops say they responded to reports of gunfire in Albuquerque at around 1 AM — and when they arrived at the scene, they found Jones inside a 2019 Jeep with the engine running and the car in park.
Jon denied firing a gun — but officers say he appeared intoxicated (bloodshot, watery eyes and reeked of booze) and conducted a field sobriety test, which he allegedly bombed.
He also took a breathalyzer, twice, and registered over the legal limit both times.
During a subsequent search of the vehicle, cops say they found a black handgun and a half-empty bottle of tequila behind the passenger seat.
Who among us hasn’t had a few too many and wanted to go pop some shots off in the dry heat of an Albuquerque morning?
Do things the right way, Mr. Bones. Dust off the gaming console of your choice, pop one of the wonderful installments of Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, or many others and DO BEERS in the safety of your home.
One of my favorite things to do when I feel like getting tipsy and popping shots off is playing Rockstar Games’ 2018 offering Red Dead Redemption on the old PS4. I jump on my trusty White Arabian Grito IV and head to the saloon in Blackwater to drink my cares away. Might even run into my old friend Lenny. RIP LENNY.
