Jon Jones Pleads Guilty To DWI, Sentenced To 4 Days Of House Arrest & 1 Year Of Probation

Jon Jones has pled guilty to a DWI charge stemming from an incident last week in New Mexico, according to MMA Fighting.

Jones reached a deal with prosecutors on Tuesday and was sentenced to four days of house arrest and a year of probation. He may also have to complete 48 hours of community service, wear an ankle monitor while under house arrest, pay a $500 fine, and participate in a 90-day drug treatment outpatient program.

Jones was originally charged with DWI, negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container, and driving without insurance. However, Jones’ guilty plea resulted in the latter three charges being dropped.

The fighter released a statement through his rep after his arrest, saying, “While we all work to understand and cope with stress and uncertainties surrounding the current state of our world, I want to express how truly disappointed I am that I have become the source of a negative headline again, especially during these trying times. I am disappointed for letting down the people I care about the most: my family, friends and my fans. This morning I entered into a plea deal with the Albuquerque DA’s office. I accept full responsibility for my actions and I know that I have some personal work to do to which involves the unhealthy relationship I have with alcohol. I have dedicated so much time and energy to improve my community, and I will not allow this personal setback to hinder my work within the community when we need it most. I truly appreciate the support I have received from the community of Albuquerque and all my fans around the world. I very much look forward to putting this behind me. Thank you all for your continued love and support, and please take care of yourselves.”
