More than a week after turning himself in to authorities following an alleged hit-and-run car accident, video has emerged of former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones' vehicle being searched by police in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  

As seen in this video, courtesy of KOAT, officers looked through Jones' abandoned car and found a pipe and condoms, among other items:

Following the incident, the UFC announced it had suspended the 27-year-old fighter indefinitely and stripped him of his championship, according to ESPN.com's Brett Okamoto.

In the wake of the situation, Jones was apologetic on Twitter:

It is unclear what the future holds for the box-office attraction at this point, but he has plenty of legal proceedings to go through before he or anyone else can consider a UFC return.

There is no doubt UFC President Dana White would love to have one of his biggest stars back in the fold at some point; however, Jones has to get his life back on track first.
