More details on Jon Jones crash from Sunday, Jones facing jail time

As reported earlier on the site, current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is alleged to be involved in a hit and run car accident.

Jones has not been charged with any crimes but is wanted for questioning by local police.

TMZ is also reporting that the car that was involved in the incident was a rental car and registered to Jones. Albuquerque police department spokesperson Tanner Tixier,  said that pregnant woman who Jones allegedly crashed his car into has suffered a broken arm. Thankfully, her pregnancy was not affected by the crash. Tixier said that Jones was previously facing a misdemeanor but he is being sought for suspicion of a felony hit-and-run and that carries a maximum penalty of three years in jail and fines.

The Associated Press spoke with the off-duty police officer that was named as a witness and said that the suspect (who is alleged to be Jon Jones), ran back to the crash site and stuffed cash in his pants. The suspect then ran off again from the crash site.

Albuquerque police are waiting on a judge to sign off on an arrest warrant for Jones.
