BREAKING NEWS: UFC Fighter Jon Jones Suspected of Hit-and-Run

| No comment

According to MMAjunkie, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is wanted for questioning in a hit-and-run case.

Sources claims that the victim is pregnant but her name and stage of pregnancy have not been disclosed. Police officers went to Jones' house in Albuquerque, NM and attempted to contact his lawyer as well, but have yet to hear from the fighter. 

The crime is currently classified as a misdemeanor, but one witness identified Jones at the scene. The accident happened Sunday morning and was a vehicle-to-vehicle.

Currently, Police are looking to get Jones’ side of the story, and no arrest warrant has been issued. But, he will be issued a summons and should he fail to appear in court within four weeks, a warrant for his arrest will definitely be issued.

The UFC has since released a statement:

“We are aware that the Albuquerque Police Department is interested in speaking to Jon Jones regarding his possible involvement in a motor vehicle accident,” the statement read. “We are in the process of gathering facts and will reserve further comment until more information is available.”

Jon Jones is currently scheduled to defend his title against Anthony Johnson in UFC 187, a major pay-per-view that takes place May 23 in Las Vegas.
