UFC superstar Jon Jones has now been named a suspect in a hit and run crash in which a 20-year-old pregnant woman was hospitalized, the Albuquerque Police Department reports.

Albuquerque PD spokesman Simon Drobik told ESPN, Jones is facing a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge related to an accident that sent a pregnant woman driving another vehicle to the hospital with “non life-threatening injuries.”  He would be liable for damages to the vehicles involved and medical costs of the 20-something woman.

“The case has progressed and he is now our suspect in the the hit and run that happened earlier this morning involving a pregnant female,” Drobik said. “We are now definitely looking at him as a suspect.”

Jones tested positive for traces of cocaine prior to an eighth title defense against Daniel Cormier on Jan. 3 in Las Vegas.  Jones admitted himself to a drug treatment facility after the failed test and eventually underwent outpatient therapy.  There were rumors on social media that drugs were involved in the wreck, but cops wouldn’t say anything about that at this point.

The UFC says it is aware of the investigation and is actively trying to gather information.

Jones camp delivered no comment when asked.
