Jon Jones is once again in trouble with the law.
Friday, ESPN reporter Marc Raimondi dropped the following bombshell regarding UFC legend Jon Jones.
“Jon Jones was arrested early Friday morning by the Las Vegas Metro PD, a police spokesperson told ESPN. Jones is being charged with battery domestic violence and injuring and tampering with a vehicle.”
Of course, Jon Jones has had other run-ins with the law during his illustrious UFC career. He was involved in a hit-and-run accident involving a pregnant woman in 2015 that ultimately led to Jones vacating the light heavyweight championship. He was also involved in a DWI case last year in which he reached a plea deal. He also took a plea deal in a 2016 drag racing case where he was captured on video having a heated dispute with a police officer during the stop.
This unfortunate news is coming literally hours after Jones made the following remarks regarding his future plans upon his UFC return:
“I think that’s something I haven’t been good at in the past,” Jones told reporters during a media scrum about his ability to self-promote. “You look at guys like McGregor, who just talks so much shit, and he’s so good at it. He’s so good at it. He’s so good at marketing himself. I have always just focused on winning. And I think when I come back as a heavyweight, I’ll try to do more legally controversial shit so that I can sell a little more pay-per-view.”
More details regarding this arrest are expected shortly, so we will keep you updated on this breaking story.
