By now, you may have heard about Jon Jones and the report that the former UFC light heavy weight champion had turned himself in to Albuquerque PD and is now being held at the county jail for drag racing.
This is bad news for Bones fans... and for Jones and his family, obviously. He's been on the straight and narrow for months now, in preparation for his UFC fight with Daniel Cormier to get his belt back. All signs pointed to a sober and remorseful Jones, but this is decidedly not consistent with the "changed man" narrative.
Jones had recently received 5 traffic citations, among them were tickets for drag racing, and an illegal modification to his car’s exhaust.
But we have an interesting new development
According to FrontRowBrian, the police officer who pulled over Jones has had at least one documented accusation of racial profiling in the past. Check out his latest tweets below:
What do you think?
Will this all blow over for Jones or is this another sign that he still needs to work on his public persona, image, and actions?
