UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was arrested Thursday morning for driving while intoxicated and a gun charge, according to TMZ Sports.

Police responded to reports of shots being fired at 1 o’clock in the morning. Upon arriving at the scene, officers say they found Jones seated inside his vehicle with the engine running.

According to TMZ Sports:

This is not Jones’ first brush with the law.

“In 2012, Jones avoided jail time on a misdemeanor DWI charge caused by running his Bentley into a utility pole in upstate New York,” USA Today reports. “In April 2015, he was involved in a hit-and-run that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm and resulted in him being stripped of his UFC title. He violated his probation terms from that case by drag racing a year later.”
