In case you missed it, UFC Light Heavyweight champ crashed his 2012 Bentley this week. Despite the car reportedly costing $190,000 the worst part of the story is that it happened while Jones was driving under the influence of alcohol.
Jones was arrested after the accident and charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
