Titty Bar Burn Out and a Suspended License result in a Towed Bentley for Bones Jones

By now you all know that Jon Jones was arrested for a DUI on Friday. What you may not know, is that it wasn't "Bones" first run in with the law. As according to the MMAcorner.com Jones had also been previously caught driving with a suspended license late last year.

From  Jon Jones November 2011 Police Report:
 "On 11/24/11 I observed a black Bentley turn Northbound on Jefferson NE from Westbound McCleod NE. The vehicle came around the corner sideways and tires squealing. The vehicle continued North at a high rate of speed and pulled into the Fantasy World parking lot. I conducted as traffic stop and contacted the driver, identified as Jonathan Jones. I ran Jones drivers license through MVD and it was suspended. I then ran his drivers license through NCIC and they confirmed his it was suspended. Jones was cited for loss of traction and suspended drivers license. Jones vehicle was towed from the scene."
The fact that Jones was headed to an Albuquerque titty bar was taken into consideration and the charges were dismissed on March 8th, 2012.

Now, in Jones defense the Fantasy World fully nude club looks like a good time, but that's no excuse for drunk driving (in another state). Which I'm sure the Broome County, New York Sheriff's Department will show Mr.Jones soon enough, especially with out the titty bar consideration to fall back on.

But, you know what the sickest thing about this whole mess is? It might just end up being the best thing that ever happened to him.

Jones is lucky A: that he didn't kill himself and a school bus full of nocturnal school children and that B: He found time in between praying for Rashad and being the best Jon Jones he could be, to crash his $190,000 Bentley into a poll. If anything, hopefully it accomplishes a few positive things. 

First, hopefully the bitter pill that is a good ol' fashion public shaming humbles Jones, even if it's just a little bit and gets him focused on being the greatest of all time. 

Second for better or worse, hopefully (for him), this kind of incident makes him more relatable to the general public. Right now, to most people Jon Jones might as well be a space alien between his other worldly exhibitions of martial combat and sickeningly humble reactions afterwards people just don't get him. But, now with a little bit of dirt on him, hopefully everyone (Jones included) can realize that nobodies perfect.
