Jon Jones Turns Himself In For Alleged Felony Hit-and-Run Charge


UFC champ Jon Jones was officially named as a suspect in a hit-and-run accident that left a pregnant woman injured in New Mexico.

Jones allegedly fled the scene of a hit-and-run accident where he ran a red light and slammed into the woman’s car Sunday morning in Albuquerque, NM.

Witnesses, including an off-duty officer, reported that a man believed to be Jon Jones ran from the scene.  Police searched the car and found items belonging to Jones plus marijuana and a marijuana pipe.

One witness says Jones got out of his silver Buick and ran into the hills — before slouching over and darting back to the car to grab a “large handful of cash.”

A warrant was issued for Jones’ arrest for felony hit and run due to the severity of the victim’s injuries.


Cops say Jones surrendered and was in custody at Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center without incident. Bond was set at $2,500.  Jones’ bond was posted and he was released just hours after turning himself in.
