Video: Local reporters on the scene for Jon Jones court appearance

It looks like Jon Jones is drawing a fair bit of local coverage following his apparent involvement in a hit and run accident over the weekend.

Jon Jones declined to enter a plea in his first court appearance, on Tuesday, April 28th. The UFC light heavyweight champion was granted the freedom to travel outside the county following his posting of a $2,500 cash bond, with no future court date yet decided upon. According to reports, a district attorney has 60 days to review the case before handing their case over to a grand jury to deliver an indictment. All of this is, of course, stemming from his apparent involvement in a hit and run accident over the weekend of the 26th, in which an SUV, reportedly driven by Jones, was said to have run a red light, causing a three car crash and sending a pregnant woman to the hospital with a broken arm. Jones was reportedly seen fleeing the scene on foot.

All of which has resulted in felony charges for the current UFC champion. As you can see in the video, Jones declined to speak to reporters about the incident, however, one member of his legal team went on the record telling KOB 4 (h/t MMAFighting): "What's next is the criminal complaint and this is something that's going to play out. And as far as I'm concerned, from this standpoint, Mr. Jones gets to go live his life."
