Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Not That It Matters, But Jon Jones Had Two Chicks In His Car When He Crashed His Bentley Into a Pole

In a follow-up report about Jon Jones’s DUI arrest, WBNG Action News confirms that the UFC light-heavyweight champ had two women in his 2012 Bentley Continental GT when he had a run-in with a telephone pole in Binghamton, NY, on May 19th. Both were injured, and neither of them was his fiancée:

Cara Johnson, 25, was in the front passenger seat and Michele Vojtisek, 25, was sitting in the back passenger seat. When Jones crashed, air bags deployed. Vojtisek suffered bruising and cuts on the right side of her face, one above her eye and one below. Johnson got a nosebleed and complained of shoulder pain. She also had bruising from a seat belt. Both women were treated at Wilson Hospital.

Officers say Jones speech was slurred, he was unsteady on his feet, and it was evident he was intoxicated. Jones refused a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer. He pled guilty to DWI Tuesday in Binghamton City Court as part of a plea deal and will be back in court for sentencing on June 19.

MMA Mania gives us the head up that Cara Johnson was a former college basketball player who went to high-school with Jones; we’re not sure who this Vojsitek broad is. And in a related story on SI, Loretta Hunt lays out the complete history of Jones’s spotty relationship with driving:

Jones, who lives in Ithaca with his fiancée, Jessie Moses, and their two young daughters, Leah and Carmen, was also cited seven months earlier in Albuquerque, N.M. — where he trains for fights — for driving with a suspended license. That charge was dismissed in March for failure to prosecute. Jones’s New York license was active at the time of his May arrest.

Jones was also involved in documented multi-vehicle accidents in January 2011 in New Mexico and in New York in December 2008 and January 2009. Jones was not found at fault for any of the accidents, but was cited for “unsafe passing” in the January 2009 collision with his fiancée and newborn daughter in the car with him. None of the accidents involved alcohol consumption, according to the reports.

You guys in the comments sound more and more like gossipy little jr. high girls with each passing day.

Contrary to the title, I think it does matter, a lot. It's one thing to do something stupid when only you might get hurt (though obviously drunk drivers can always hurt others) but to involve other people just adds a layer of disregard, selfishness, and idiocy. Shame he seems to be getting off light.

I guess when this "young kid" with two kids of his own said the UFC'd never have a problem with him having a DWI, he meant it'd never happen with him alone in a car. If there's booty in the wagon, that doesn't count. They probably forced him to drink and drive. It's not his fault, we all make mistakes, etc., etc....

At 24 he's not young anymore, he's just stupid now. He's setting a great example. I hope his kids turn out to be drunk drivers just like their dad. Not really, I hope JJ and his whole family dies horribly in a car fire.
No, that's not how I really feel and you have some real issues if you thought it was.
paskhl- May 31, 2012 at 11:56 am
Even if its not how you feel,that is a stupid comment my friend...
holeeball- May 31, 2012 at 12:48 pm
Yes, you're quite right. I just don't think a father should conduct himself in this manner. Specially when said father reaches tens of thousands of kids around the world. It's very sad that JJ hasn't the brains to be anything more that UFC champ when he could be so much more. He could have injured/killed himself and others and left a wife and children and who knows what else. All this not because he is young but because he is stupid. So much wasted potential and people wonder why so many hate him. If only he had a humble bone in his body...

4 car accidents seems like a lot...right? Or am I just being a big stick in the mud for never being in one?
Clearly he learnt his lesson the first 3 times and was just curious to see what it would be like when drunk. He's young, let him experiment [/sarcasm]
Anhonestmoose- May 31, 2012 at 8:47 am
Yeah, 4 accidents is ridiculous (especially in a 4 year span). I've had one accident in my entire driving career, and I'm the same age as JJ.
209BJJ- May 31, 2012 at 8:10 am
So...contrary to previous reports that nobody was hurt in this crash, TWO people were hurt in the crash. I honestly hope that Jones learned his lesson. Looks like RAshad was right about JJ being fake. I personally never bought his entire "Golden boy" persona. People do make mistakes and despite his own beliefs, he is not perfect.

Haha I love it when a guy has a fiancee AND already has kids. Guess what sucker, she's getting half of everything plus child support whether you make her an honest woman or not!
Fried Taco- May 31, 2012 at 7:31 am
Probably not her based on the basketball pics going around, but who knows?
MorningwoodII- May 31, 2012 at 7:30 am
see a light weight champ would only have 1 chick or a couple of buddies in his car.
Fried Taco- May 31, 2012 at 7:24 am
He was just exploring some local talent:

Poles and hoes, poles and hoes, I gotta have me my poles and hoes!

John Jones' fiancee's mom is married to the mayor of Binghamton. I'm sure he'll pull some strings for him...

aint that some shit?
Breakin2ElectricBoogaloo- May 31, 2012 at 6:59 am
Damn when Jessie sees this she is goin to all Elin Nordegren on him and unlike Tiger JJ will snap and hit her with the lethal backhand that will set up his next arrest for murder. EPIC FALL STARTS NOW! Hope he has a buddy like Al Cowlings to drive away from the murder scene...JJ sure as hell cant drive
