A felony arrest warrant has been issued for UFC 187 headliner Jon Jones by the Albuquerque Police Department (read it here), stemming from his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run accident on Sunday morning, one that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm.
Arrangements have also been made with Jones to turn himself in.

The UFC light heavyweight champion was identified at the scene by an off-duty police officer, according to the Albuquerque Police Department report that was issued earlier today (Mon., April 27, 2015).
Officer Sullivan stated that Jones fled his vehicle -- a 2015 silver Buick SUV -- and ran up a dirt hill. Other witnesses told police that Jones ran back to the vehicle and grabbed a handful of cash before fleeing again and hopping a fence (full report here).
MMAmania.com spoke to Albuquerque PD spokesman Luis Hernandez on Monday evening about the arrangements for Jones' surrender.
"We are still waiting for him to turn himself in," Hernandez said. "Arrangements have been made, but we still haven't seen Mr. Jones."
According to Hernandez, the surrender arrangements were made with Jones' lawyer, who to his knowledge, has not yet been identified.
As for a timetable on when Jones has to turn himself in, Hernandez said, "I don't know if the timetable has expired or not. That is something we are trying to catch up with."
The future of UFC 187 does not look bright.
