After learning his former teammate was in distress, Jones jumped on his four-wheeler and headed out to the rescue, as documented on Twitter by his girlfriend, Taylor Higgins.
About five hours after sending out his tweet about being stuck, Freeman was greeted by his smiling friend.
Freeman was able to get his car into a parking lot and was taken somewhere much warmer by Jones.
