After getting arrested last April for his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run incident which injured a pregnant woman, UFC star Jon Jones could be in deeper trouble after a video at the crash site showed that marijuana was found inside his silver Buick SUV.

USA Today reports the video footage at the site of the incident showed the authorities' discovery of Jones' identity while searching his vehicle.

In a similar report, MMA Junkie said Albuquerque Police Department released the footage that shows the events that took place following the April 26 accident in Albuquerque.

According to the same report, the video footage of the responding police officers showed that the authorities were able to find rental paperwork with Jones' name on it and a Nevada State Athletic Commission document under his name. But to make things worse, officers found a pipe used for smoking marijuana, along with loads of condoms and cash.

Also appearing in the video was the victim, Vanessa Sonnenberg, who had broken her arm due to the incident. Sonnenberg could be seen explaining to investiagtors how the accident happened.

Fox Sports has learned that Sonnenberg could be seen sitting on the pavement, holding an ice pack on her arm, in the video. She could be heard telling responding officers that the driver of the SUV beat a red light and "kept going, he just hit me."

The same report detailed that the woman felt lightheaded after the accident because she was pregnant. Sonnenberg was later on taken to the hospital for medical help and it was found out that she had obtained a broken arm and wrist out of the crash.

The 911 caller on the audio claimed that she saw the driver of the Buick SUV (later identified as Jones) run from the car after he hit other vehicles.

"The guy just hopped off into a yard. The guy that's getting out of the SUV, he took off running. He's running over fences," the female caller explained.

A day after the accident, Jones turned himself in and was charged with felony for leaving the accident scene. He was later on released after he posted a $2,500 bail.

That same week, the UFC took away Jones' light heavyweight title and slapped the fighter with indefinite suspension. Jones was then pulled out of his scheduled fight against Anthony Johnson and Daniel Cormier was asked to take his place for the UFC 187 fight. Cormier ended up winning the fight and bringing home the belt.

Aside from getting stripped off of his title and being suspended indefinitely, sports brand Reebok also terminated a major sponsorship deal with Jones. As of late, it is still unclear whether Jones is returning to the UFC anytime soon.
