Two passengers injured in Jon Jones DWI crash

According to police reports obtained by WBNG of Binghamton, New York, UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones had two female passengers who were injured when he crashed his Bentley into a telephone pole before being arrested for DWI in Binghamton, New York two weeks ago. Both air bags had deployed during the crash.

The two women, both 25, have been identified as Cara Johnson and Michele Vojtisek. Johnson, who attended Union-Endicott High School with Jones, was in the front passenger seat at the time of the crash and suffered a bloody nose, bruises and shoulder pain. Vojtisek sustained bruising and cuts to her face. Both were transported to Wilson Hospital for their injuries.

Jones was uninjured, but according to the arresting officer he had "slurred speech and glassy bloodshot eyes," smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet when asked to step out of his vehicle. The arresting officer wrote: "There were no skids marks at the scene. It appeared as though Jones was attempting a turn north onto Helen [Street] and miscalculated his turn."

Binghamton Police Deptartment Captain John Chapman said : "[Jones] politely refused multiple requests to take sobriety and breathalyzer tests at the scene and after he was arrested and taken into custody. Toxicology tests were not conducted, as there were no serious injuries."

This was not Jones' first run-in with the law when it comes to driving.

According to Bloodyelbow.com, Jones was cited on November 24, 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for driving with a suspended license in the same Bentley. The charges were dismissed in March for failure to prosecute.

According to that police report: "On 11/24/11 I observed a black Bentley turn Northbound on Jefferson NE from Westbound McCleod NE. The vehicle came around the corner sideways and tires squealing. The vehicle continued North at a high rate of speed and pulled into the Fantasy World parking lot. I conducted as traffic stop and contacted the driver, identified as Jonathan Jones. I ran Jones drivers license through MVD and it was suspended. I then ran his drivers license through NCIC and they confirmed his it was suspended. Jones was cited for loss of traction and suspended drivers license. Jones vehicle was towed from the scene."

Jones was previously 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 those accidents involved alcohol consumption, according to the reports

    It will be a fitting end to this stupid saga if as a result of all these distractions Jones shows up at UFC 150 unfocused and unmotivated and gets KTFO'd by Hendo.

    2 women, refused breathalyzer, didn't have valid license. What an a-hole. If what we saw about his sentence is true, there is no justice. Phuck him the religious hypocrite.

    @Entity- In all fairness, he was drunk at the time. Lots of people are assholes when they're drunk. If nothing else though, this might be a wake up call that he shouldn't drink, because he doesn't handle his booze well.

    So the average joe gets a minimum 30 days in county i believe in california (5-10 actual days served most likely) and jones gets off scott free even with a history of bad driving, AND a suspended license? Being famous is so awesome.

    Maybe wealth doesn't keep him out of jail, but it sure helps it suck less.

    That has no bearing for after the conviction though. That's strictly after the party is declared coherent enough to leave the drunk tank.



    Again, him not receiving a stiffer penalty had nothing to do with his wealth.

    I for one am shocked and appalled that a 24 year old who is a world champion in his sport would let fame and fortune go to his head like this. There is no way you would have found me out drinking alcohol and associating with loose women in my fancy sports car at that age. For shame!!!!

    Too bad he would be gone from the UFC before he surpasses Mike Tyson's thugsta status. Just wait until we hear about the lawsuits these women will file soon as it all sinks into their small brains.

    Jon Jones isn't going anywhere, Dana is too much on his sack to do something that stupid. We're all seeing Dana's hand picked few that get away with shit other fighters got canned for.

    When this story first broke it was pretty obvious that he wasn't alone in his Bentley. Wonder how his ”future wife” is feeling about this?

    It's funny you got weakd for this when its the most sensible thing anybody has said. Having two people in the car with him only matters if you choose to pick apart his personnel life.

    I care because as a fan you choose favorite fighters based on two things persona and fighting style. Jones portrayed himself as someone who was trying to make the best out of his life ,despite being down on his luck, while facing the realties of him and his girlfriend struggling to raise a young daughter.

    Did I think he was perfect? No. But like many of his fans we cheered for him because he was being a man, becoming the youngest champ ever and doing the right thing for his family. My point was as fans we may feel deceived but I can't imagine how his ”future wife” must feel living with the poor decision(s) he's made.

    Normally I would agree with you. However, Jon has promoted himself not only as a role model, but a Christian as well. This goes directly against his chosen belief system, and makes him look like a hypocrite, or as his previous adversaries have put it, "fake".

    Who gives a shit about how he promotes himself? Weren't we all smart enough to see through it in the first place? Was anybody really dumb enough to believe he was a perfect guy who goes to church once a day?



    His previous adversaries have already painted him as fake. There are many other stories of him doing things like this (one is from a person who trains at his gym that has implied he sleeps with any woman he wants). People want to see it as some smoking gun that he's not "holier than thou". Aren't we the same generation that grew up with guys like Jordan and Woods getting caught cheating big time?



    He's a professional fighter that has a lot of money, and fame and can't drive for shit. This isn't exactly surprising.

    Hit the nail on the head with that Evan! That's the way it goes around here with all the haters out there just waiting for this cat to mess up.

    Didn't expect it this soon out of Bones; he never fails to do the opposite of what I expect though. Maybe Dan can capitalize on all this keeping Bones to busy to train properly for their fight.......one can only hope.

    For 1st time drug/alcohol conviction while driving usually does not get jail time. The penalty, from what I read, is a fine, classes, and probation. That is standard for 1st time offenders in our judicial system. If Jones was a habitual offender, it would be a different. However, for him deciding against doing a breathalyzer, then I believe that would be the reason for his licence being suspended for a year. Plus, an attorney may get the charge from a DUI.OMVI to a, "driving w/ a BAC of .08" which is the legal limit, and make it a class C misdemeanor instead of Class A or B.



    Bones insurance carrier on that Bentley will compensate the injured parties for their injury. That is the reason auto insurance is a state law. In every state, you must carry at least liability insurance. Bones won't have to pay any out of pocket, unless it is for his Bentley's collision deductible.



    Bones just needs to learn from it and move on. I think people are being way too harsh on him as a person. He made a mistake, hopefully he owns it and is a better PERSON because of it.

    I agree that it is a serious thing, but come one, all you trying to talk down like he's a child is retarded. He's a grown ass man that made a grown as man decision. who gives a shits how many bitches were in the car too, thats his grown ass man business. I am surprised in a way Dana is almost brushing the shit off since a "drunk driver' was responsible for "MASK's" death. "Sports" have conduct codes and if Dana should spend more attention to this shit if he wants to continue talking about mma growning mainstream. JMI.....

    This would result in a significant suspension in any "mainstream" sport, so if the UFC wants to fall in line with that, they need to suspend him long enough to miss a fight...say 6 months. We all know that's not going to happen though, and frankly, I don't want to have to wait longer for the Hendo fight.

    That's actually incorrect. The NFL and MLB have no policy for suspension. Nick Fairley was recently suspended for going on a highspeed chase while hammered with Police. However, Braylon Edwards was caught recently and will play opening day. MLB is similar. It's at the teams discretion, but they still have to be paid if they are suspended.
