Jon ‘Bones’ Jones in trouble, accused of driving without a license

Jon Bones Jones

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Just after the UFC announced Jon “Bones” Jones will have a championship fight in April following a long layoff after he crashed into a pregnant woman and took off, KRQE News 13 has learned his driving problems continue.

Online court documents show on January 31 Jones was cited for driving without a license, registration and insurance, by a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputy.
An article put out by the UFC says Jones “was stripped of his crown due to legal issues that have since been resolved”.

Jones has had a lot of trouble behind the wheel. In 2012 he was convicted of DWI in New York after he crashed into a pole and was ticketed in Albuquerque in 2011 for driving on a suspended license but in recent months Jones has promised to clean up his act.

Since accepting a plea deal in September, Jones has been speaking at schools, community centers and even the jail, about his alcohol and marijuana fueled hit and run crash last April that injured a pregnant women and led to the UFC stripping him of his title.

“To be able to encourage, motivate and inspire, you know, has been awesome. I’m really grateful for it,” said Jones after a recent speaking engagement.

Jones has apologized publicly to everyone he let down, including the hit and run victim.

“I want to apologize to Ms. Sonnenburg’s team, all the officers that were involved that day, all the people who have supported me that I’ve embarrassed.”

It was just announced Saturday that Jones will be back in the octagon for UFC 197 on April 23rd, in a title match against World Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.

Jones said, “I believe my best is yet to come in business, my career, as a husband, as a father. I think my best is yet to come, and I honestly have a feeling things are going to be better now than they were before.”

KRQE News 13 reached out to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office to find out more about Jones being ticketed on Jan. 31st but did not hear back.

Jones is due in traffic court Wednesday morning on charges of driving without a license, insurance and registration.
