ARRESTED FOR DWI AND GUN CHARGE
… In New Mexico
UFC superstar Jon Jones was arrested for DWI and a gun charge in New Mexico Thursday morning, TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Cops say they responded to reports of gunfire in Albuquerque at around 1 AM — and when they arrived to the scene, they found Jones inside a 2019 Jeep with the engine running and the car in park.
Jon denied firing a gun — but officers say he appeared intoxicated (bloodshot, watery eyes and reeked of booze) and conducted a field sobriety test, which he allegedly bombed.
He also took a breathalyzer, twice, and registered over the legal limit both times.
During a subsequent search of the vehicle, cops say they found a black handgun and a half-empty bottle of tequila behind the passenger seat.
He was arrested and booked for aggravated driving while intoxicated, negligent use of a deadly weapon and possession of an open container.
We’re told Jones was booked and released and has a bond arraignment court date set for April 9.
We’re also told the probation Jon got in his strip club slap case had ended on Jan. 8.
