These days, when someone famous crashes their ride, we shouldn't assume we're going to get anything close to resembling the real story when initial details are released. It certainly happened with ex-Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino, and it appears to be happening with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones, who crashed his $250,000 Bentley Continental GT at 5 am last Saturday morning. At first, we heard that he was bailed out of jail by his mother. Since then, he's pled guilty to driving while intoxicated, seen his driver's license suspended indefinitely, and had sentencing scheduled for June 19. Also, it now appears Jones was not alone when he wrecked his car.
Binghamton police reports released today indicate that Jones had two 25-year-old female companions in the car, Cara Johnson and Michelle L. Vojtisek. (Johnson was in the front seat, Vojtisek in the back.) Both were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital. Furthermore, the report indicated that both front air bags deployed upon impact and that Jones displayed "slurred speech and glassy bloodshot eyes" while "politely" refusing to agree to a field sobriety test.
Of course, neither of these women is Jessie Moses, Jones's fianceé and mother of his two young daughters. Jones, meanwhile, is scheduled to fight at UFC 151 on September 1 in Las Vegas, pending any pesky legal problems.
