UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon "Bones" Jones just pled guilty to DUI -- after his boozy arrest last week in upstate New York.

TMZ broke the story, the 24-year-old was popped in Binghamton May 19th after crashing his Bentley into a pole, totaling the car.

Jones posted an apologetic message on his Facebook after the arrest, writing, "I screwed up, big time." The message was subsequently deleted (shocker).
 
A rep for the Broome County D.A.'s office tells TMZ, Jones refused a breathalyzer at the time of his arrest, but admitted he had been drinking.

Jones' license has been suspended and he's due back in court June 19th. He faces a year in jail.

Why apologize for being human? He can learn from this and move on.

Don't feed the Trolls    

Bones messed up big. You don't become the Champ on to F up crashing your car that cost more than most peoples house. Totally preventable which he will find out being driven around by somebody else for a min. 6mo. for refusing the test. He's lucky he didn't kill himself or anyone else.

I'm from NY State so I know firsthand the kind of trouble he's facing for this. He's a big time celebrity (which NY doesn't have many of), so he may get leniency, but ultimately the state of NY will seriously f*ck you over for a DUI arrest. NY is probably one of the worst states to get caught drinking and driving in.... only slightly better than certain parts of Virginia.
