ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Witnesses tell police that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones ran from a crash that hospitalized a pregnant woman but quickly came back to grab “a large handful of cash” from the car.
Albuquerque Officer Simon Drobik says authorities are searching for Jones, who’s wanted for questioning. No charges have been filed, but the woman driving the other vehicle received minor injuries in the Sunday morning crash.
Officers found marijuana in the car as well as MMA and rental car documents in Jones’ name. Police say they have been unable to reach Jones.
His agent, Malki Kawa, did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press.
Jones (21-1) is scheduled to defend his title against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson at UFC 187 in Las Vegas on May 23.
