Jon Jones Once Got His Car Towed for Tokyo-Drift’ing Into a Strip-Club Parking Lot Like a BOSS


(Photoshop of Bones’s new sponsor via CrushCo)

There’s really not much to add after that headline, but the long version is this: Jon Jones’s DUI arrest wasn’t the first time his driving has gotten him into trouble. BloodyElbow has confirmed that the UFC light-heavyweight champ ran afoul of Albuquerque cops last fall for recklessly driving his Bentley on a suspended license:

Jon was pulled over for flying around a corner in his car and losing traction before pulling into the parking lot of a “fully nude club” (Fantasy World). The police pulled him over in the parking lot and ran his license, they then realized it was suspended and, as a result, Jones’ car was towed. The charges were dismissed in a March 8, 2012 trial.

The full police report is here, if you’re interested. The incident took place on November 24th, 2011, just 16 days before Jones’s UFC 140 title defense against Lyoto Machida, so it’s pretty damn fortunate that his impromptu drift-racing adventure didn’t turn into anything more serious. Still, skidding into a strip club parking lot on Thanksgiving Day seems like a perfect example of the kind of immature and wild behavior that was supposed to be in Jones’s distant past.

You better hope JJ never loses a fight. He would probably go on a Rampage har har har

Out of all this though, it goes to show you how right Evans is and was about Jon Jones. I know he may have lost his title match-up with him but can't help but think he's smirking a little right now with a big fat 'I told you so' smugness about him.

It is becoming clearer and clearer and Jones is a fake and it's not even someone else unearthing this for us other than the man himself.

There has to be some more juicy stuff out there. :)

I wonder if the crimefighting Jon Jones could stop the criminal Jon Jones.

It would be a good fight.

Best comment I have read this AM, give this guy a mythical CP t-shirt.

Buy another one you rich muthafucker! Fuck yo Couch!

Jon Jones would be fucking awesome if he would just stop lying to us about who he really is. I bet he is fun to hang out with when he's driving recklessly on his way to see cheap pussy while his girlfriend is at home with their kid. I wish I was there with him to be honest. Jon Jones it appears you actually read this crap so listen up: Nobody hates you for all the reasons you think they hate you. They hate you because almost every word they hear from you is a carefully constructed lie. it's the same reason everybody hates politicians and lawyers. Is your ego so massive that it won't let you understand this? Cut the messiah act, live your life the way you want to, and be honest about it. Look at chris leben. That guy likes to play vehicular manslaughter roulette as much as anybody, yet he's still a fan favorite. Why do you think that is?

I did not have sex -- I mean I did not drift my Bentley on to the stripper den. Really, just ask my publicist.
macreadysshack- May 22, 2012 at 12:13 pm
Guys, he only did this stuff because Greg Jackson told him to 'go get some fans'. Damn, I'm glad the bible thumping boyscout shit is over with. Let's see who JJ really is. Human - like everybody else.

"BTW, I’m no FletchV but in the police report under the column that says ethnicity, why does it say "N" and what does that stand for exactly?"

The12ozCurls- May 22, 2012 at 12:43 pm
Thanks - that was very helpful - now I just have to narrow down the 50 "N" ethnicities. I am pretty sure I can rule out "Narragansett – native Americans of New England" & "Norwegians - Scandinavian people from the nation of Norway" but lineage is a tricky thing I suppose, so anything is possible. *rimshot*

So it appears that Suga Rashad did in fact get Jones to drift to his lou.
The12ozCurls- May 22, 2012 at 9:53 am
Oh ya - ALL the hot strippers work on Thanksgiving night - Shit strippers have families too (because most of them are just working their way through college, right?). I'm sure the chicks working the pole on Thanksgiving night in Albuquerque NM are covered in c-section scars and hypo track marks. Very Classy indeed.
BTW, I'm no FletchV but in the police report under the column that says ethnicity, why does it say "N" and what does that stand for exactly?
Fletch the V Stretch- May 23, 2012 at 6:29 am
Oh don't pretend you are not fully aware!!! When you write your next article you should do like Danga when he says "takes drink of Scotch" except yours should say "drenches cross with gasoline" or "slips on white robe" :)
The12ozCurls- May 23, 2012 at 8:11 am
You must be confusing me with someone else. Bastard, don't steal my schtick and try and turn it back on me. DAMMIT! lol
Fletch the V Stretch- May 23, 2012 at 9:41 am
LOL, surely you knew this day would come!
neanderdude- May 22, 2012 at 9:48 am
Reckless driving on his way to a strip club: It's what Jesus would have done.
bgoldstein- May 22, 2012 at 9:22 am
@slimpickens Oh boy. BloodyElbow is usually trustworthy, so I didn't even read the report that closely. Will look into it and update later if necessary. I hope this isn't just a case of "Well of *course* it's him, how many Jon Joneses drive black Bentleys in Albuquerque?"
O Chan- May 22, 2012 at 9:21 am
@slimpickens, I believe "BLD" stands for Bald and not blonde. As for the weight, well, he is pretty lanky.
slimpickens- May 22, 2012 at 8:53 am
Read the police report. Jones is 6'4'' but he is NOT 150lbs and his hair certainly isnt blonde. Not the same guy.
The12ozCurls- May 22, 2012 at 9:57 am
It FUCKING better be the same guy because this story is 2 good for this to be false. Dammit slimpickens, just let us have our fantasy world here and quit being a buzzkiller. lol
MorningwoodII- May 22, 2012 at 8:44 am
he also drifted into some VD later that night in the VIP room.
amsterdamheavy- May 22, 2012 at 8:28 am
"Boy, you done fucked up the car an' erythang!"
Fried Taco- May 22, 2012 at 7:50 am
So when Jones said he would smash anyone they put in front of him, I didn't realize he meant with his Bentley.
ArmFarmer- May 22, 2012 at 7:48 am
For some reason I dislike him a little less for this. If I was rich, I think drifting my Bentley into the "nude fantasy world" parking lot would be high on my to do list.
Fletch the V Stretch- May 22, 2012 at 8:50 am
Haha. Thanks for the laugh.

I told you before, if you need help with Photoshop, just ask.
