Chael Sonnen, arguably the smartest man in MMA, spoke recently with TMZ Sports about Jon Jones' latest run-in with the law.
”I sit back like anybody else and read, Jon and I don’t have the best relationship, but I’ve known Jon for a number of years, I’ve competed with Jon, I’ve done stuff with Jon. But I observe Jon, more than anything I can observe him from the outside. And I’ll just tell you, it would just seem like if he didn’t just get behind the wheel. So many of his problems, which are self-inflicted by the way, would not exist.”
Sonnen also commented to how the responding officer treated Jones police ‘humiliated’ Jones during recent DWI arrest in an interview with TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter.
“So I watched that body cam and I don’t want to get into the legal stuff on this, but I thought that they kind of embarrassed him a little bit,” said Sonnen. “There might be reasons why you have to do that I’m not weighing in too much, but they asked him straight up, ‘Have you been drinking?’ And he responded yes.
“It seemed like the next 13 minutes was kind of humiliating the guy who already copped to it. That’s not wonderful. This is a bad thing he’s going through, but my sense of it was Jon told the truth three seconds in. What are we doing here?”
“In Jon’s defense, no matter how limited, they asked Jon a question and Jon told the truth.”
