The colossal demise of the UFC’s biggest star, Jon Jones, could soon be hitting an all-time high.

According to Marc Raimondi of mmafighting.com, Bernalillo County (N.M.) District Attorney Kari Bradenburg anticipates bringing Jon Jones’ felony hit and run case to a grand jury.

Jones, the former UFC light heavyweight champion, was arrested in connection with an April 26 car crash that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm. Jones allegedly then proceeded to flee the scene, only to leave his ID in the rental car that he crashed.

But the DA is waiting on a few more pieces of evidence, including medical reports from the alleged victim and computer dispatch reports from the responding Albuquerque Police Department officers, before they present the case to a grand jury.

In an email to mmajunkie.com District Attorney PIO Kayla Anderson said, “Proceeding on a case without complete discovery could result in the likely dismissal of the case altogether. We have requested both pieces of outstanding evidence and anticipate moving forward when we have a completed case investigation.”

The 60-day window that the DA has to bring Jones to a grand jury expires at the end of today. Stay tuned to LowKickMMA.com for all news pertaining to the case.
