On Thursday, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested on four different counts: aggravated DWI, negligent use of firearms, possession of open container, and no proof of insurance in vehicle.
Two members of the Albuquerque Police Department, officer Jason Brown and officer Brian Johnson, responded to the scene. Hours after Jones’ booking, MMA Junkie acquired arrest reports that give firsthand accounts from the officers involved.
According to Brown, Jones “had green leafy substance on his shirt and pants, consistent with marijuana” and “an odor of alcohol coming from his facial area.” Brown noted that, during a search of Jones’ vehicle, he found a handgun underneath the driver’s seat and a matching spent round next to the driver’s side door.
Johnson, meanwhile, observed that Jones “had bloodshot, watery eyes and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his facial region.” It was Johnson who made note of Jones’ field sobriety tests.
“Jonathan did field sobriety tests and performed poorly on all three of them,” he wrote. “He also performed poorly on two out of three alternative tests. He was searched and arrested.”
