With determination and investigative journalist work, Loretta Hunt got a big scoop in the Jon Jones Driving While Intoxicated saga. Her article for Sports Illustrated identifies the two young women that were in the Bentley with him at the time of the crash - and neither was Jones' fiancée .

Michelle L. Vojtisek and Cara Johnson, both 25, sustained cuts, bruises and swelling from the collision and were transported to Wilson Hospital for treatment, according to the report. Both air bags had been deployed during the crash.

Johnson, who was in the front passenger seat, attended Union-Endicott High with Jones, according to online records.

Ms. Hunt also put together a short summary of the driving related mishaps that Jones has had in his short time as a professional athlete.The front of Jones' 2012 black Bentley sustained heavy damage, said the report.

Jones, who lives in Ithaca with his fiancée, Jessie Moses, and their two young daughters, Leah and Carmen, was also cited seven months earlier in Albuquerque, N.M. -- where he trains for fights -- for driving with a suspended license. That charge was dismissed in March for failure to prosecute. Jones's New York license was active at the time of his May arrest.

Jones was also involved in documented multi-vehicle accidents in January 2011 in New Mexico and in New York in December 2008 and January 2009. Jones was not found at fault for any of the accidents, but was cited for "unsafe passing" in the January 2009 collision with his fiancée and newborn daughter in the car with him. None of the accidents involved alcohol consumption, according to the reports.

At this moment, Jones appears to be heading towards a legal resolution to this that does not involve jail time. The young champion is also scheduled to defend his belt against Dan Henderson on September 1st, 2012.
