Jon Jones was booked in New Mexico for violating his probation early this morning per TMZ Sports.
A judge had issued a warrant for the UFC star’s arrest for violating the terms of his probation after he was cited for drag racing in Albuquerque last week.
Jones turned himself in to the Albuquerque PD at 10 AM Tuesday morning and is currently being held at the jail.
Erik Megraken who specilises in Combat Sports Law has suggested that this violation is a big deal as if Jones is convicted, he will be a felon due to his previous guilty plea from the hit and run.
