"Bones" Jones - From
A well-known MMA fighter arrested for DUI (drunk driving)? Apparently so, according to

It appears that non other than Jon (Bones) Jones, reigning UFC light-heavyweight champion, is in trouble with authorities after crashing his car and being arrested by police.

If this turns out to be true, then it is indeed bad news for someone who was considered somewhat of a role model.
Jones' management confirmed in a release that the 24-year-old mixed martial arts champion was arrested early Saturday in Binghamton, N.Y., at around 5 a.m.
Jones manager Malki Kawa issued this release: "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."
