Hit-and- run case against Jones stalls

Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An Albuquerque hit-and-run case against former UFC champion fighter Jon “Bones” Jones has stalled due to a delay in obtaining records, prosecutors said.

The Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office said Monday a deadline had passed without the state moving forward because prosecutors are still waiting on dispatch reports and medical records for a pregnant women involved in the crash.

The state had 60 days after the release of Jones to present a case to the court, D.A. Office spokeswoman Kayla Anderson said. Without the evidence in the records, she said, a judge could dismiss the case.

Anderson said prosecutors anticipate moving forward when they have a completed investigation.

Police say officers were told by witnesses that Jones ran from a crash in April that hospitalized the pregnant motorist then quickly returned to grab a handful of cash from his rental car.

Authorities say the accident occurred in southeastern Albuquerque when the driver of a rented SUV ran a red light.
