UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was arrested for alleged aggravated DWI and negligent use of a firearm by police in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Thursday morning, according to reports.

Reports from ABC’s Albuquerque news affiliate KOAT state that officers responded to reports of gunshots and discovered Jones in his car, who claimed he knew nothing of the discharged weapon.

After the attending officers believed Jones to be under the influence of alcohol, he was subjected to sobriety tests which he reportedly performed poorly in. He also took an alcohol breathalyzer test, with the UFC star producing results 200 percent above the legal limit.
