Vegas Arrest Footage Shows Ex-UFC Champ Jones Headbutting Police Car (VIDEO) – Reuters


Former UFC champion Jon Jones can be seen in emotional distress during September’s arrest in Las Vegas

UFC superstar Jon Jones headbutted a police car and insulted officers during his September arrest on the Las Vegas Strip, which came hours after his Hall of Fame induction of the UFC.

Jones, who is the most successful light heavyweight champion in UFC history, was arrested shortly after police were called to Caesars Palace Casino on Sept. 24 after a member of the Hotel security reportedly observed Jones’ fiancée, Jesse Moses, bleeding from her wounds. to his nose and mouth.

She later told police the UFC fighter had become a little physical during an argument.

When police arrived, reports surfaced that Jones, who had been drinking, damaged a police cruiser and was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence on battery as well as tampering with a vehicle.

The footage, which was obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, shows an aggravated Jones in handcuffs and hurling abusive words at police.

“Humble me [on] my hall of fame party“, we can hear him say. “Fucking nerd. I hate you. I hate you! I hate you! Fucking nerd. I hate you so much.

Say your name publicly. You turned me into my Hall of Fame party, just because I’m tall and black. And what did I do? I came from my Hall of Fame ceremony, and I’m black, and I didn’t do anything to you.”


The clearly emotional Jones adds: “Brother, hang me. Hurt me and kill me. What did I do?

A black man can’t drink? Being elected to the Hall of Fame, and that’s what I got?

Jones then told the officers again that he “hated” before hitting the car with his head, prompting the police to hold him further.

The 34-year-old fighter was later arrested and taken to jail, according to a police report of the incident where he was later released after posting bail. He later did not contest a charge of destroying property.

The incident came hours after he attended a ceremony to induct him into the UFC Hall of Fame for his classic 2013 bout with Swedish fighter Alexander Gustafsson.
