On the bright side, Jon Jones only got five tickets this week, none of which were felonious in and of themselves. On the flip side, he got arrested this morning for violating his probation, and that could have felonious implications. “Bones” can’t throw a rock without hitting somebody wearing a badge. It’s almost comical, in the way that bad jokes can sometimes be.
This time Jones was cited for drag racing in New Mexico, and you’d like to think he was trying to race back — or ahead — to the person he hoped to become all those years ago, before his troubles began. He was at least revving his Corvette’s engine at the red light, depending on which side you listen to, his or the officer’s. And let’s face it, the cop who pulled him over came off like a smart ass with a mean big brother.
In any case, you know what it feels like, this latest incident, so close to Jones getting in trouble for driving without license or proof of insurance (while still on probation for the felony hit-and-run charge that cost him his belt [while still sporting a black eye for testing for cocaine, which was met with greater scrutiny given his previous DUI in upstate New York])?
Like we’re exhausting that thing we call “the benefit of the doubt.” That’s the unfortunate spot that Jones finds himself in. You only want Jones to stop showing up on the police scan.
Not that Jones doesn’t believe he’s trying to do better. He does believe that. He’s been trying to get back to some original version of himself. Yet, somehow, even in his deep mulligan stages, the greatest fighter the UFC has known can’t get his intentions and his actions to connect.
