911 audio from alleged Jon Jones hit-and-run released


Video surfaced Monday documenting what appears to be the immediate aftermath of the April 26 hit-and-run accident which led to Jon Jones' indefinite suspension and stripping of his long-held UFC light heavyweight title.

Officer Tanner Tixier of the Albuquerque Police Department confirmed to that the video, which shows officers interviewing one of the two victims then searching through Jones' damaged vehicle, was comprised of actual body camera footage from on-site officers alongside a 911 call from a witness.

Jones, 27, was arrested on April 27, a day after allegedly running a red light and causing a three-car collision, then fleeing the scene of the accident only to return for a handful of cash and flee once more.

The day after Jones' arrest, UFC President Dana White announced on FOX Sports 1 that Jones would be stripped of his UFC title and suspended indefinitely while the UFC awaited the Bernalillo County district attorney's decision regarding whether or not to bring Jones' case to a grand jury. If convicted, Jones faces a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death or personal injury.

Footage and the 911 call from the scene of the accident can be seen below.
