Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones pleads guilty to a DWI charge in court Tuesday morning.

The MMA fighting champion from Endicott was arrested last weekend after a Binghamton crash.

Jones entered into a plea deal with the District Attorney's office Tuesday in Binghamton City Court.

Under the terms of the deal he pled guilty to Driving While Intoxicated.

Two moving violations, one for an improper turn and another for deviating from a direct course were dismissed.

Jones' Attorney told the judge the agreement for punishment is a fine and a conditional discharge.

Police say Jones was behind the wheel of his 2012 Bentley which crashed into a telephone pole near the corner of Grand Boulevard and Helen Street on May 19, 2012.

Jones' license is now temporarily suspended.

He will be back in court for sentencing on June 19, 2012.

Jones must also complete an alcohol abuse and dependency assessment before sentencing.
