More details have emerged in the latest arrest of former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Jones, 34, was taken into police custody last week just hours after being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
TMZ Sports has reported that Jones “pulled his fiancee’s hair and then headbutted a police car, leaving a dent in the hood and chipping paint, during his Las Vegas arrest early Friday morning.”
According to a Las Vegas Metro Police Department arrest report, officers were called to Caesars Palace at approximately 5:08 AM for a “domestic disturbance” in a hotel room … involving a white female who was “bleeding from her nose/mouth” and a “black male adult who is a professional MMA fighter.”
Police detained Jones after finding him walking near the hotel.
The TMZ Sports report goes on to say that Jones became “irate and smashed his head onto the front hood of the LVMPD patrol vehicle,” leaving a medium-sized dent, as well as chips in the paint.
While handcuffed, police say Jones experienced a wide range of emotions. At one point, cops say he threatened to sue the department for handcuffing him on the biggest night of his life.
The report continues to state that police officers found blood on the bedsheets and a sweatshirt that belonged to Jones’ fiancee Jesse, who also is the mother to the couple’s three children.
Jesse told the officers that “Jon came back (from a night of partying after the induction ceremony) and was not very happy.” When they asked her if things turned physical, she replied “Umm not too physical but a little bit yeah.”
When cops asked what she meant, Jesse said, “he touch the back of my head and pulled my hair a little bit but he did not hit me or anything.”
Police were initially called to the scene after Jesse went to hotel security around 4:30 a.m. and asked for another room key. The security guard notice that Jesse was bleeding from her lip and asked her if she was ok. That is when Jesse began to cry and explained what unfolded and asked the guard to call the police.
Jon Jones was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and felony tampering with a vehicle. He is due in court next month.
