Attorney: Jon Jones’ prior criminal history could get him jail time in current DWI case

Since MMA (and every other sport) is on vacation due to COVID-19, Jon Jones picked a particularly bad time to run afoul of the law yet again. Early Thursday morning, the UFC light heavyweight champion was arrested on DWI and firearms charges. Police bodycam footage and the officer’s reports don’t look good for the champ, and combined with his many other run-ins with police in the past, Jones could be looking at a more serious punishment this time around.

MMA Fighting spoke to a criminal defense attorney, David Serna, who gave his expert opinion on the circumstances surrounding the case.
