Well, here we go again.

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones has been arrested on DWI and firearms charges in Albuquerque, NM.

Officers found Jones sitting in a Jeep with an open bottle of alcohol early Thursday morning after responding to reports of gunfire.  A search turned up a handgun under the seat and a spent round on the ground outside the driver-side door.

Jones was arrested for aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, open container, and no proof of insurance.  He was released from custody on Thursday.

How should UFC respond to this most recent incident?  Would Jones be the greatest MMA fighter ever if not for all the arrests and failed drug tests?

Is this the last straw for Bones?
