Jon Jones was booked in New Mexico for violating his probation moments ago — and posed for a brand new mug shot after turning himself in … TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told a judge had issued a warrant for the UFC star’s arrest for violating the terms of his probation after he was cited for drag racing in Albuquerque last week.
Jones was sentenced to probation last year after being convicted in a hit and run case in which the UFC star crashed into a pregnant woman’s car and then ran from the scene on foot.
One of the terms of Jones’ probation was to not get into any trouble with the law — and the judge felt the drag racing citation qualified as a violation.
Jones has been sidelined for the past year after he was convicted of a hit-and-run of a pregnant woman’s car. Jones was expected to fight Daniel Cormier at UFC 197 on April 23rd but that fight may be in jeopardy following his arrest.
The UFC has yet to comment on Jones most recent arrest.
