    According to Kayla Anderson, the public information officer from the Second Judicial District Attorney's office, in a statement sent to FOX Sports on Monday, Jones won't face any kind of probation violation as a result of the traffic stop.

    "Our understanding is that this will be dealt with by a sanction at the probation level, and we will not be filing a formal probation violation," Anderson said on Monday.

    The good news is Jones won't face any kind of probation violation as a result of this citation, and he can continue preparation for his upcoming fight at UFC 197 against Daniel Cormier.

    Why would get a VOP for traffic offenses?

    It's a traffic violation, nothing serious. Some idiots on this site already got their pitchforks ready.

    He wouldn't (which I assume is the point you were already making). Technically any 'police contact' has to be reported, even over a civil infraction. But it wouldn't constitute a violation in and of itself.

    I wasn't referring to your post, I meant to say that The Haters are usually the first to arrive to most parties

    How does a guy who had a previous DUI and a driving while suspended even have a drivers licenses less than a year after his hit and run?

    If this guy hurts someone driving I hope they sue the state for failure to protect it's citizens.

    A lot depends on exactly what the offenses were. If he was actually driving at a time he did not have a valid driver's license, the required insurance and/or a registered vehicle, those things can be serious. On the other hand, if he had a license, insurance and registration, but just didn't happen to have EVIDENCE of those things with him when he was picked up, it is a much, much less serious offense.

    Exactly you wouldn't. Unless the withheld judgement that he agreed to specifically said, "no minor traffic violations". Which, in my experience, never happens and didn't in his place. The only people who care about this are Jones haters, and/or people remarkably ignorant of the American Judicial System.
