In case you've been living under a rock, some rubble, and at the ends of the earth for the past 24 hours, Jon Jones appears to be in trouble. The UFC's light heavyweight champion was reportedly involved in a hit and run accident, in which witnesses say he ran a red light, before fleeing the scene on foot. A pregnant woman, also involved in the crash suffered a broken arm, potentially raising Jones' involvement to felony status.

Jon Jones has always been a fighter that has elicited strong emotions amongst mixed martial arts fans, and now a failed random drug test for cocaine has ignited a firestorm of fan-created media on the internet.
What started out with the police looking to question Jones about his involvement quickly became a search for his whereabouts and has now turned into an arrest warrant, which you can view here.
According to MMAFighting, who reported the release of the warrant, arrangements are also in place for Jones to turn himself over to the custody of the Albuquerque Police Department sometime in the near future. So, it would appear that the manhunt phase of the drama has come to a close.
