All things considered, it seems like Jon Jones is getting off incredibly light after being hit with several charges stemming from his March 26 arrest.

The police responded to a report of gunfire and allegedly found a handgun in the car. However, that issue has been dropped.

Now, Jones will just have to sit at home, do some community service and probation. Not too bad at all.

It’s especially not too bad when you consider the fact we’re all supposed to be isolating from coronavirus anyway.

Hopefully, Jones uses this as an opportunity to learn from his mistakes and move forward with his life. He’s had repeated issues with the law and with his fighting career.

At some point, you’d think the UFC superstar would have a come-to-Jesus moment, but it apparently hasn’t happened yet.
