UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon "Bones" Jones was arrested early this morning for DUI after he totaled his Bentley in upstate New York ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jones was involved in an accident at around 5:00 AM in Binghamton, NY. We're told the car -- which Jones crashed into a pole -- was totaled and cops arrested Jones on the scene for DUI.

According to our sources, Jones was taken into custody by Broome County Sheriff and bailed out a few hours later ... by his mom. Jones is from nearby Ithaca.

How's this for irony? Jones filmed a video earlier this year about going through police training -- and he did it with the Broome County Sheriff ... the same agency that arrested him!
After knowing him as a part-time crime fighter and full-time MMA phenom, it's almost kind of, dare I say, comforting to find out that he's actually human just like the rest of us. Still, I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a little disappointed in him.

I must agree with you Ape, I felt this pedestal he'd been placed upon was not going to be good for him and although it is indeed good to know he is human too, I can't escape the feeling he'll come back and do something awesome to atone for this slip from grace. Like showing us he can fly or something ;).
I wonder how Dana is going to deal with his golden goose?

Haha. So, so awesome. :D

I'm thinking Dana might be a little preoccupied at the moment:


UFC PrezDana White is on the receiving end of some terrifying death threats from an ex-MMA fighter who says he plans to "shoot [Dana] right in the head" -- and now cops are on the case.

It's unclear what started the beef, but the wannabe fighter -- Dan Quinn-- has gone off the hinges, leaving voicemail messages threatening to blow up Dana's offices and put a bullet in the back of his head.

Quinn's fighting career spanned nine years from 2001-2010. He never fought in the UFC, but did face off against a couple of future UFC fighters, including 2004 heavyweight champ Frank Mir (Quinn got beat).

Quinn has made rambling threats against White for several years on YouTube, but they escalated recently after Quinn somehow got Dana's private work number and left chilling messages.

In the voicemails, obtained by TMZ, the delusional Quinn accuses White of sending in henchmen to kill him, claiming, "I just want you to know, since you're bringing that to me, you should be worried about your own safety, bitch."

Quinn adds, "I'm gonna shoot you right in the head motherf**ker."

The voicemails get even weirder -- one from a guy (presumably Quinn) speaking in an Irish accent and calling himself "Paddy O'Neill." The "Irish" interloper then makes several threats.

We're told White has never met or spoken with Quinn -- sources say the Prez never ever heard of the dude until last week, when the voicemail threats got crazy.

White's security team turned the voicemails over to the Vegas PD, which is currently investigating.

Calls to Dan Quinn were not returned.

That's pretty disturbing. The amount of ex-MMA fighters who go off the rails is alarming, or at least they seem to do so in spectacular fashion.

Yeah Dana's having a rough time as of late:

Overeem is caught using steroids
Cruz blows out his ACL so Faber now fights Barao for the 135 pound Interim Belt
Has a nutcase after him threatening to kill him
Jones gets a DUI

Times like this is where he earns his money keeping himself and the UFC together.

Well, he needs something to be occupy him a bit more, since The Wire finished up in '08.
