You know you have a problem getting behind the wheel when you the safest thing for all parties is for you to have a driver.
That’s the case with former champ Jon Jones, who can stop himself from breaking the law whenever he puts the key in the ignition. So of course he has someone chauffeuring him around now.
As per MMAFighting:
On the heels of a controversial traffic stop which resulted in five traffic tickets and a violation of his probation, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has enlisted the services of his nutritionist, Lou Giordano, to also serve as his full-time driver ahead of UFC 197 on April 23.
“I have him here and he’s driving me between every practice all day, even at night now,” Jones said Monday on The MMA Hour. “I figured I’d take getting in trouble out of the police’s hands by simply not driving.”
“There’s a pattern throughout my career,” Jones said. “I’ve never gotten into a street fight, nothing crazy. It’s always been something behind the wheel. So, by simply not driving, I’m pretty positive that there won’t be any issues coming up in my life, especially (with my) sobriety as well. I’ve failed some drug tests in the past and I’ve gotten some traffic issues in the past. Now that I’m sober, now that I’m just not going to drive anyone for a while, I think we’re going to be good.”
