Jon Jones is back in trouble with the law again as it’s emerged that the former light-heavyweight champion was cited for driving without a license, registration and insurance on January 31st.
Jones is due in court on Wednesday in Albuquerque, New Mexico regarding the matter, coming just a few months after he plead guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident after having been involved in a hit-and-run incident that left a pregnant woman injured.
The 28 year-old avoided jail time on that occasion, instead being handed 18 months of supervised probation in addition to being required to do 72 hours of community service.
That’s not the only driving offense on Jones record though as he was also caught driving with a suspended license in Albuquerque back in 2011, while he was convicted of a DWI charge in New York in 2012.
In a recent interview after his hit-and-run case concluded and his suspension was lifted by the UFC, Jones had stated that he was looking to turn his life around and become a better person.
He had also set his sights on reclaiming his title and indeed just this past Saturday night his comeback fight against current champion Daniel Cormier was announced as the headline fight at UFC 197 which takes place on April 23rd in Las Vegas.
At this stage it’s not certain how this latest misstep might affect Jones, though it’s worth noting that the terms of his probation state that he’s not supposed to break any laws.
