UFC superstar Jon Jones was arrested DWI and a gun charge in New Mexico on Thursday morning, TMZ Sports has confirmed.

Cops say they responded to reports of gunfire in Albuquerque around 1 AM — and when they arrived to the scene, they found Jon Jones inside a 20-19 Jeep with the engine running and the car in park.

Jon denied firing a gun — but officers say he appeared intoxicated (bloodshot watery eyes and reeked of booze) and conducted a field sobriety test, which he allegedly bombed.

He also took a breathalyzer, twice, and registered over the legal limit both times.

During a subsequent search of the vehicle, cops say they found a black handgun and a half-empty bottle of tequila behind the passenger seat.

He was arrested and booked for aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, Negligent Use of a Deadly Weapon and Possession of an Open Container.
