UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones has avoided jail time following his May 19th arrest for driving under the influence, he did pick up a $1,000 fine and a six-month license suspension in the process. On top of that the champ will have ignition interlocks installed on his vehicles, and he needs to complete a victim-impact panel.

Soon after the sentencing was handed out Jones, posting via his Twitter, said:

“Blessed to still have the full support of Broom County/all my fans and my DWI case officially behind me.”

“Moving forward.”

The 24-year-old champ crashed his 2012 Bentley into a utility pole in the early morning hours of May 19th. He was not hurt or injured, but two female passengers suffered minor injuries and were treated at a local hospital.
