TMZ- UFC star Jon Jones was arrested early Friday morning in Las Vegas for domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle, and is currently behind bars, TMZ Sports has learned.
Our law enforcement sources tell us they received a call from Caesars Palace around 5:45 AM. Cops responded to the hotel … where they made contact with the UFC superstar.
34-year-old Jones was ultimately arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence and injuring or tampering with a vehicle, a felony.
Jones is in Vegas this week because his 2013 fight against Alexander Gustafsson was inducted into the Fight Wing of the UFC Hall of Fame.
What can you even say at this point that hasn’t been said? Jon goes to Vegas for 12 hours (to get a fight inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame) and he’s already back in jail. It’s truly ridiculous…he clearly doesn’t want help and has made enough money that he doesn’t give a shit to fight again. Which is the true loss in this whole situation in my opinion.
I was there LIVE and in person for the Jon Jones, Gustafsson and it was one of the greatest fights I’ve ever seen. Jon Jones always had a great fights and arguably is one of the GOAT in the UFC. Too bad we’ll never see him fight again, if this Dana White clip is any indication.
Hopefully the victim is alright and Jones gets whatever is coming to him.
Jon Jones – in the words of Daniel Cormier – get your shit together!
