Being in court is a lot like being in the military: Keep your trap shut and don't speak unless spoken to.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones appeared before Judge Maria Dominguez on Tuesday (April 28, 2015) inside Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to answer for felony charges of hit-and-run.
Our full report with all the gratuitous details right here.
Flanked by attorneys, a stoic and soft-spoken Jones (far cry from this) did not dispute the probable cause that led to his arrest on Monday; however, he also did not enter a plea as he waits for the district attorney to move forward with an indictment over the next 60 days.
"Bones" was recently released on $2500 bond.
