Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was back in a New Mexico court on Wednesday answering to a citation for driving without a license, no proof of registration, and no proof of insurance. The citation stemmed from a Jan. 31 traffic stop, where Jones was pulled over for driving 75 miles per hour in a 35-mile-per-hour zone in Albuquerque.
Although he could have been cited for reckless driving, Jones was not.
Instead, he was able to appear on Wednesday to provide proof of his driver’s license, registration, and insurance, and then agreed to make a $100 donation to the New Mexico Animal Humane Society. In agreeing to do so, Jones, who is currently on probation in New Mexico, will not receive any further penalties as long as he stay s out of trouble for the next 90 days, according to a report by TMZ Sports.
