New York, NY- Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder Jon Jones was arrested Saturday May 19th after he crashed his Bentley into light pole in upstate New York. He appeared in court today for his arraignment.
Police said in a statement, that cars were dispatched at 5:02 a.m. to respond to a one-car accident. When police arrived they found Jones, driving a Bentley, had struck a utility pole in Binghamton, New York.
According to celebrity gossip site TMZ, the Bentley was totaled.
Jones, who is a devout Christian, had a squeaky clean image until his arrest over the weekend. His clean image can be used by a DWI attorney to build an effective defense that may result in a lenient sentence for Jones.
Jones went on Facebook to apologize to his fans for his indiscretion, saying, “I am truly sorry to those of you that I may have embarrassed in any way, to those of you with kids that I may have let down. I will prove to them as well as to myself, that no matter what is happening in my life, we can always work our way back and make things better than before.”
The police report didn’t state what his level of intoxication was, but a DWI generally indicates a person was well above the legal limit. DWI penalties are severe and the alleged guilty parties will need to hire the best DWI attorney they can find.
If you want to avoid a jail term and negate some of the other penalties, you must retain a DWI attorney with a track-record of getting reduced sentences and fines for their clients.
