"The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine"
Or not so much.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested on Thursday for another DUI, plus negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container, and driving without proof of insurance. On Monday he reached a plea deal, pleading guilty to the DUI, and seeing the other charges dropped. Jones will be under supervised probation for one-year and will have to serve 96 hours in a community custody program with an ankle monitor, and will be barred from leaving his residence without permission permission.
So it's four days house arrest, during a period when hundreds of millions are sheltered in place.
On Tuesday Jones issued a statement via his rep Denise White:
"While we all work to understand and cope with stress and uncertainties surrounding the current state of our world, I want to express how truly disappointed I am that I have become the source of a negative headline again, especially during these trying times.
"I am disappointed for letting down the people I care about the most, my family, friends and my fans. This morning I entered into a plea deal with the Albuquerque DA's office. I accept full responsibility for my actions and I know that I have some personal work to do to which involves the unhealthy relationship I have with alcohol.
"I have dedicated so much time and energy to improve my community, and I will not allow this personal setback to hinder my work within the community when we need it most. I truly appreciate the support I have received from the community of Albuquerque and all my fans around the world. I very much look forward to putting this behind me."
"Thank you all for your continued love and support and please take care of yourselves."
