UFC champion Jon JonesUFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning on suspicion of DUI. TMZ first reported the incident, which was later confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Jones’ manager, Malki Kawa.

The initial report from TMZ, citing undisclosed law enforcement sources, alleged that “Jones was involved in an accident at around 5 a.m. in Binghamton, N.Y.” Jones reportedly totaled his car when he crashed into a pole, and was arrested on the scene for suspicion of DUI.

He was taken into custody, but later released when his mother paid his bail.

“I can confirm that Jon Jones was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI,” Kawa said in a statement to MMAWeekly.com. “While the facts of this situation are still being gathered and situated, First Round Management fully supports Jon and we are asking for fans and media to respect the privacy of Jon and his family during this time.”

When contacted by MMAWeekly.com for comment, UFC president Dana White, who had to go in for surgery earlier this week and missed his first live UFC event in 11 years, simply stated, “It hasn’t been my week, has it?”

Jones is coming off of a win over Rashad Evans at UFC 145 in April, and is slated to next defend his belt against Dan Henderson at UFC 151 on Sept. 1 in Las Vegas.

Jones, obviously, was not available for comment.
