    导出博客文章Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has accepted a plea deal in
    connection to his highly publicized traffic stop in March.Jones, 29, appeared in
    Bernalillo Metropolitan Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to charges of
    unlawful exhibition driving and improper display of registration, according to
    court spokesperson Camille Baca. TMZ first reported the plea agreement.Three
    additional charges -- unlawful drag racing, unlawful use of modification of
    exhaust systems and failure to maintain traffic lane -- were dismissed, in
    accordance with the deal.Jones received a 90-day deferred sentence. The court
    ordered 60 hours of community service and completion of an aggressive driving
    class. The judge did note Jones has fulfilled 51 hours of community service for
    a district court case, which he will be credited for.The charges stemmed from a
    traffic stop on March 24 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A police body cam showed an
    agitated Jones arguing with an officer and calling him a f---ing liar. Jones
    later apologized for his behavior toward the officer, but denied drag racing. He
    said he revved his engine to acknowledge a group of nearby fans.Jones is
    currently under suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, stemming
    from a failed drug test on June 16. Jones (22-1) was scheduled to fight Daniel
    Cormier at UFC 200 on July 9, but was removed from the event days before after
    the United States Anti-Doping Agency reported he had tested positive for two
    banned substances, including estrogen blockers.Jones immediately stated he did
    not know how the substances got in his system. Barring a successful appeal,
    Jones is facing a potential two-year suspension.

    PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions didnt even play last weekend and still made
    progress. A loss by Minnesota left the Lions tied with the Vikings for first
    place in the NFC North.That hardly registered with coach Jim Caldwell.It doesnt
    affect us, positive or negative, Caldwell said Monday after his team came off
    its bye week. Were focusing on the next game.That next game is Sunday at home
    against Jacksonville. The struggling Jaguars (2-7) have lost four in a row, but
    Caldwell insisted they present plenty to worry about.Theyve got a fair amount of
    high draft picks on this team who are very capable players, Caldwell said.
    Theyve done a lot of good things.Theyre getting 4.2 (yards rushing) per carry,
    which is where wed like to be, he added. (Allen) Robinson catches the ball well.
    He has 48 catches and they have four more guys with at least 25 catches. They
    have two backs as good as any you can see and they have defensive guys who can
    run and hit. Thats going to be a problem. So weve got to be ready.Monday marked
    the first time the Lions had met the media since Donald Trump was elected
    president. When asked about it, Caldwell initially tried to deflect the
    question.I try to use this platform for what its meant for, and thats to talk
    about my team, he said. Leadership is important. I do know that. Had I voiced
    the same opinions as some of our candidates, I wouldnt have this job five
    minutees after I walked off this stage.dddddddddddd Some of you as well. But yet
    the person has become the leader of the free world. So again, a different time
    and place, and Im moving forward.Offensive lineman Larry Warford said that,
    while Lions players did discuss the election, they kept it light.Guys have been
    giving it jokingly, he said, like anyone would about (Trump) winning, and a lot
    of conversations have come up and good talk, but its not like its unruly in
    here. Life goes on.Its that focus, special teams player Brandon Copeland said,
    that has helped lift the team to first place after a 1/3 start.Its nice to come
    off your bye week in contention, he said. But we also know that if we dont
    continue to do what weve done and win games, it doesnt mean anything. Not to go
    back to last year, but being 1-7, the only way we get to 7-9 was by focusing on
    one game at a time. Its nothing new or different to us. Its how weve been
    trained and how well continue to attack it.Game notes Caldwell said he did get
    away to spend time with his three grandchildren during the bye. My time with
    them is important, and I dont get enough of it, he said. Theyre growing up
    quickly. He also watched college football. I watched as much as I could, he
    said. Theres always something to learn. ' ' '
