Earlier it was reported that and arrest warrant had been issued for UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones in connection with a hit and run accident that saw a 20 year old pregnant woman injured. At the time, no one had seen or heard from the fighter since the incident. However, that’s come to an end as he’s turned himself in and is now in custody.

So far there has been no official word on whether his fight against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson has been cancelled or if he’ll be stripped of his title. If convicted of the crimes, Jones could face years in prison.

Felony Arrest Warrant Issued For UFC Champ Jon Jones

JonJones

 

Yesterday UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones found himself right in the middle of an enormous social media storm when FrontRowBrian revealed to Twitter that the fighter had been involved in a hit and run accident in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At the time, most of what we were hearing were rumors. Wading through the storm of BS has been a challenge, but what they’ve been able to confirm is deeply troubling and could mean the end of Jones reign as champion for the foreseeable future.

 

What we do know: According to the albuquerque Police Department, Jon Jones hit a car being driven by a 20 year old pregnant woman on April 26th. According to the police report, an off-duty officer on the scene identified Jones getting out of his car and running away from the scene of the accident, coming back to grab a handful of money and then again running off into the hills of New Mexico. After searching the rental card Jones was driving, police recovered a pipe and some marijuana. The amount of marijuana recovered has not been reported. Jones has not been seen or heard from since the incident.

 

Ariel Helwani has also just reported that the APD has issued a felony arrest warrant for Jones. Although the pregnancy of the victim in this crime was unaffected, she did suffer a broken arm which elevates the charge to Felony Fleeing The Scene Of An Accident and could mean significant time in jail for the fighter.

 

This is not the first time Jones has been in trouble with the law. Back in 2012 he was arrested for Driving Under The Influence after wrecking his Bentley and then earlier this year, after handily winning his fight against Daniel Cormier, the Nevada Athletic Commission revealed that he tested positive for a substance most commonly found in cocaine. Even though Jones claimed that his use of cocaine was a one time thing, many of us had heard otherwise. Jones has a bit of a reputation for partying a little too hard between fights. We all wondered if the one night he spent in rehab was enough and now we all have to wonder if he’d be in this situation had his coaches and the people he surrounds himself with had been more serious about his recovery.

 

Although his bout with #1 contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson has not been officially cancelled, it’s hard to come up with a scenario that doesn’t at least leave Jones stripped of his title.

Tonight at UFC 185, underdog Rafael Dos Anjos dominated fan favorite Anthony “Showtime” Pettis and became the new UFC Lightweight champion. Dos Anjos immediately took the center of the Octagon, and never gave Pettis the space or the opportunity to find his range. It was the finest performance of Dos Anjos’s career, who started his UFC tenure by being KO’d into oblivion by Jeremy Stephens.

Man’s Obituary Blames Seahawks “Lousy Call” for His Death

Michael-Sven-Vedvik

55 year-old Michael Sven Vedvik, life-long Seahawks fan and Spokane resident, died hours after the Super Bowl XLIX 1 yard line fiasco. Vedvik’s wife, Stephanie, notes that her husband Mike hadn’t been feeling well on and off, but he wouldn’t go to the doctor. He thought it was indigestion or stress, so he recorded the game. The next morning, she found her husband dead around 7am. Doctors put his time of death a few hours before then.

Vedvik’s sister wrote the obituary that appeared in The Spokesman-Review and his brother-in-law wrote the Seahawks jab. Peep the obituary below.

VEDVIK, Michael Sven Michael Sven Vedvik went to see our Lord Jesus on February 2, 2015 at his home in Kent, WA. Born on December 26, 1961 in Spokane, WA. Michael is survived by his wife Stephanie; daughters Alisha Vedvik, Brittany Mullins (husband Matthew), Chelsea Vedvik; stepdaughters Michelle and Sandy Gaughan; grandson Jayce and granddaughter Layla; father Sven Vedvik, mother MaryAnne Solberg (stepfather Gary Solberg); sisters Tina Piper and Kathrene Peters (husband Dan) and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Michael attended Rogers High and Spokane Falls Community College. He was a small business owner in Kent, WA and loved his family, work, clients, traveling, the Seahawks and life. We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike’s untimely demise. Mike was greatly loved and will be dearly missed. Funeral will be on February 7th, at 4:00 pm, at Mt. Spokane Church. 6311 E. Mt. Spokane Dr. Mead, WA 99021. Pastor Bob Smith will be officiating.

Stephanie approved the Seahawks line stating, My husband would have thought it was hysterical. If I had read this obituary to my husband about somebody else, he would have had a laugh.
