Arrest warrant sought for UFC champ in hit-and-run crash
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Albuquerque police are seeking an arrest warrant for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones.
Witnesses told police Jones ran from a crash that hospitalized a pregnant woman but quickly came back to grab a handful of cash from the car he was in and then left again.
Police say the crash happened when the driver of a rented SUV ran a red light. An off-duty police officer near the scene identified Jones.
The police department says it's working to obtain a warrant for Jones for leaving the scene of an accident. Because the woman injured in the crash broke her arm, Jones could face a felony charge.
A police report says officers found a pipe with marijuana in the SUV as well as MMA and rental car documents in Jones' name.
Police have been searching for Jones since the crash.
