    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    -Jon Jones arrested for DUI-

    http://www.fighters.com/05/19/ufc-ch...r-crashing-car

    Gotta admit I'm a bit shocked. Such a stupid, stupid decision from a guy who seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Thank goodness nobody was hurt (including Jones).

    Jones is cocky enough to think he can kick Jack Daniel's ass.

    Typically with athletes, celebrities etc I can still say a fan as long as 1) it is not something so repulsive I would not even want to be in the same room 2) they face the music like anybody else.

    I don't get why this is such a huge deal. So many of the comments on the MMA Share article are so negative towards the guy. Is this a huge cultural thing in the States that I just don't get here in the drinking land?

    Do people just hate him that much?

    He's ok, no one was hurt, **** happens, I'm sure it'll be ok.
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    A DUI offense is considered morally repugnant in America. Rightfully so. He didn't harm himself or more importantly anyone else, but he very well could have. Is the guy too poor to call a taxi, or too irresponsible to have a designated driver?

    So he could be over like .01% and it's still the same 'OMG LET HIM BURN, HE SHOULD HAVE DIED!'?

    'Cause here, our safe limit is 0.05% and yours are like 0.07-8%? DISGUSTING TO ME.

    If there was ever a doubt, he should have had the foresight to not drive. That's the problem with using some certain percent as a legal limit. Unless you have some way of knowing what your current percentage is, you'll never know if you're over the legal limit. And as you noted, the legal limit in America is pretty high compared to most countries. Which means he could have been pretty well gone, even if barely over the limit.

    What's more disgusting, some people having a differing alcohol tolerance and they get incorrectly labeled as "driving under the influence" or innocent people being killed by a drunk driver because society puts no emphasis on the dangers of driving after drinking alcohol?

    In Japan (where I currently live), the legal limit is .03% which essentially means you can't drink at all. In fact, most Japanese people mistakenly believe that it's illegal to drink at all and drive in Japan. Surprisingly, in a country where social drinking is pretty much mandatory, DUIs are incredibly rare. If people have to drive, they simply don't drink. I'm of the opinion this is the better way to go.

    I'm assuming the UFC pays him well enough that he can just hire a driver from here on out. It seems like DUI convictions are rites of passage for the newly famous.
