According to a report from ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, the Las Vegas Metro police arrested and charged UFC star Jon Jones on Friday morning with battery domestic violence and injuring & tampering with a vehicle. On Tuesday afternoon, the Las Vegas police department released a report on the alleged incident. Per ESPN...
quote:

Jones was apprehended by police on the Las Vegas strip just before 6 a.m. Friday. When he was taken into custody, the report states that Jones “became irate and smashed his head onto the front hood” of the police vehicle, causing a medium-sized dent and paint chipping. That led to the felony charge of injury and tampering to a vehicle.

In an interview at the Caesars Palace resort, the woman involved in the incident told police that Jones was a "little" physical with her, touching the back of her head and pulling her hair a bit. She said Jones did not hit her. However, police observed blood on the woman's clothing and a bump on her lip with dried-up blood. She explained that her lips were really dry. Police also observed blood on the bedsheets in the hotel room, the report stated.

The woman, whom ESPN is not identifying, told police that Jones was aggressive with her, but not violent, per the report. He grabbed the back of her hair to prevent her from leaving the hotel room. Police observed the woman with a swollen lower lip and a red mark on her upper right cheek. The woman did not allow photos to be taken, nor did she agree to a voluntary statement or recording of the interview.

A Caesars security guard told police she encountered the woman, who broke into tears when asked if she was OK, according to the arrest report. The woman said she was afraid to go back to the room. She was taken to the security office.

According to the report, prior to being read his Miranda rights, Jones said the Las Vegas Metro PD would be facing a lawsuit for putting him in handcuffs on the biggest night of his life. After his rights were read, Jones "immediately burst into tears," the report stated. The report described Jones as going through an "emotional roller coaster."

He sounds like a very troubled dude. Thank goodness the woman was able to escape the room. Seems like given the condition Jones was in even in front of police, that may've been lights out for good for that lady.

Easy solution. Let one of the heavyweights kick the shite out of him so he understands what it's like.

Only bad thing is that he can kick the shite out of the heavyweights.

What BlackPot said is true. I don’t think the guy has ever been humbled because he can beat the shite out of everyone. He probably thinks he’s invincible. Also, the cocaine helps…
