UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones entered a guilty plea today to misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in a Binghamton (NY) City Court according to a report in the Press & Sun-Bulletin. Jones was arrested on May 19 for driving his Bentley into a telephone pole in the early morning hours.
WBNG added that Jones will return for sentencing on June 19 and could face up to a year in jail although it's expected he will serve no jail time. Jones' license to drive has been suspended and he is required to undergo an evaluation for alcohol abuse and dependency.
More from WBNG:
Two traffic violations, one for an improper turn and another for deviating from a direct course were dismissed.
Jones' Attorney told the judge the agreement for punishment is a fine and a conditional discharge.
