Jon Jones avoids time behind bars in DUI case

25-year old UFC champion Jon Jones remains on track to defend his title against Dan Henderson in a month by avoiding jail time stemming from a May arrest for DUI. Jones was taken into custody as the result of showing signs of intoxication moments after a one-car accident where he smashed into a utility pole, injuring his two female passengers as well.

Jones faced sentencing on Tuesday and received a $1,000 fine along with having his driver’s license suspended for six months. He was also forced to pay repairs to the utility company and complete a “victims impact panel” in the next three months.

“Blessed to still have the full support of (Broome) County/ all my fans and my DWI case officially behind me. Moving forward,” wrote Jones of the matter on his Twitter account.
