UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones pleaded guilty to DWI following his arrest last week in Albuquerque, New Mexico, according to TMZ Sports.

Jones reportedly struck a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to one year of probation and four days of house arrest.

Additionally, the 32-year-old has to complete 48 hours of community service, pay a $500 fine, and complete a 90-day drug treatment outpatient program, according to the agreement obtained by MMA Fighting's Steven Marrocco. He's also required to wear an ankle monitor during his house arrest and install an ignition interlock device in his vehicle.

Jones will be allowed to participate in the outpatient program via video conferencing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The fighter was arrested March 26 on charges of aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm, possession of an open container, and driving with no proof of insurance. The three other charges will reportedly be dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.

Police responded to a gunshot fired early that morning and found Jones - who said he didn't know anything about the gunshot - sitting in his car.

Jones performed poorly on multiple sobriety tests and his results on a breathalyzer test were at least twice the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration.

A handgun and an open bottle of Recuerdo were found in Jones' car following his arrest.

Jones pleaded guilty to DWI in 2012 in New York, so prosecutors considered this a second offense. He could face jail time if he doesn't fulfill his current sentence, Bernalillo County District Attorney spokesperson Michael Patrick told Marrocco.

"His attorney and Mr. Jones have been made aware that if he fails to do this, the State will seek to impose the balance of any jail time without regard for any exceptional circumstances," Patrick said in a statement.

Jones issued a statement through his publicist to TSN's Aaron Bronsteter on Tuesday evening.

"I accept full responsibility for my actions and I know that I have some personal work to do to which involves the unhealthy relationship I have with alcohol," he wrote. "I have dedicated so much time and energy to improve my community and I will not allow this personal setback to hinder my work within the community when we need it most."

The agreement still needs to be approved by a judge.
