UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested early Thursday, March 26, by Albuquerque Police for aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm.
Video footage from one of the arresting officer’s lapel camera reveals Jones’s sobriety test and his eventual arrest.
Jones was arrested at 1:01 a.m. after police responded to reports of gunshots and found him in the driver’s seat of his 2019 Jeep with the engine running and the vehicle in park. Jones denied firing a gun, but appeared intoxicated to officers.
The 32-year-old failed a field sobriety test. Later, Jones took two breathalyzers and registered above the legal limit both times.
During a search of the vehicle, police found a black handgun under the driver’s seat and a bottle of Recuerdo (alcohol) behind the passenger seat. He was arrested and booked for aggravated driving while intoxicated, negligent use of a firearms, possession of an open container, and no proof of insurance.
Jones is expected to have a bond arraignment hearing on April 8.
