UFC Fighter Jon Jones Identified As Man Who Ran Away From A Hit-And-Run Involving An Injured Pregnant Woman! Drugs Found In The Car!
This is all kinds of bad!
UFC fighter Jon Jones has been identified by an off-duty police officer as the man who fled a hit-and-run scene in New Mexico. The Albuquerque Police Department has confirmed that the incident happened early Sunday morning when a 20-year-old pregnant woman was injured in an accident, and the other driver ran away on-foot. The driver reportedly smashed into the car after running a red light, then "grabbed a handful of cash" and ran.
At this point, authorities believe it's the 6'4" 205lb UFC fighter because not only was he identified but the abandoned rental car had documents with his name on them. And there was also some marijuana and a pipe found inside.
As of now, the police haven't been able to speak to Jones.
The story is still developing, and we'll keep you posted.
