UFC champion Jon Jones is in trouble with the law again. The longtime king of the light heavyweight division is no stranger to the law, having first been arrested for driving under the influence back in 2012, when he crashed his Bentley into a telephone pole. In 2015, ‘Bones’ ended up turning himself over to police custody after fleeing the scene of a traffic accident in which a pregnant woman was left with a broken arm.
Now, reports have surfaced that Jones has been arrested once again for driving under the influence, as well as a firearms and an open container violation. After the incident other pro fighters from the UFC and all around the world took to social media shared their thoughts and opinions on the news.
This is the most talented fighter in the history of MMA. Imagine if other sports had to deal with their GOAT being such a mess. It’s drives me nuts. https://t.co/rbftyvxHxu

I feel the same way about people who ask you for a ride to the airport. If you’re still getting DUI’s, DWI’s or asking for rides to the airport, you’re a selfish asshole. ♂️ #uber #lyft #tesloop #yellowcab

I don’t know how it keeps happening! I take an Ambien for sleep, and next thing I know, I’m wake up doing 70mph through a neighborhood with an AR-15 in my lap. Am I Jason Bourne, or drunk on Zima?! I don’t know! https://t.co/ZwbA3mHxBO
