UFC superstar Jon Jones was arrested after the Hall of Famer ceremony he attended in Las Vegas. He was arrested by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on charges of misdemeanour battery domestic violence and felony tampering with a vehicle. Jon Jones applied for bail on Friday and was later released from custody. This wasn’t the first time he was being arrested instead this was the sixth time Jon Jones was found in illegal matters. UFC President Dana White responded to the incident stating that bringing Jones to Las Vegas was never the right thing to do. Now the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has revealed all the details surrounding the arrest and it suggests that Jones had got into an altercation with his fiancee, Jessie Moses.
According to the report, officers responded to a call from Caesars Palace stating that a female adult, later identified as Jones’ fiancee Jessie Moses, was bleeding from “her nose/mouth.” According to the statements, the domestic incident took place inside a room at Caesars Palace hotel and casino. Moses revealed that the incident took place after Jones came home from his party with his friends. She told that Jones was drunk. According to Moses, their children were present during the altercation. When she tried to leave the room Jon Jones pulled her hair.
She then went took her kids and went to the hotel security staff. A description taken from a Caesars Palace security guard stated that Moses came to the desk and asked for a key to her room while she was crying and had bloodstains.
When interviewed by police, Moses was asked if Jones had gotten physical with her, to which she responded, “Ummm not too physical but a little bit yeah.” According to the report, police observed: “blood all over Moses’ clothing and a bump with dried up blood on the lower part of her lip.” When asked about her bloody lip, Moses stated that her lips get dry.
The police report described Moses as “scared to even talk about Jonathan.” When police entered the hotel room with Moses to observe where the altercation took place, they found blood on the bedsheets.
“She still seemed very scared as to the release of Jonathan from jail,” arresting officer Boschetti wrote in the report. Moses asked him how long she had before Jones would be released from jail. Even after going through all this, Moses declined to file for a protective order against Jones.
Jon Jones responds to the entire incident
Jon Jones was definitely not in his senses even at the police station. Jon Jones said he was taking $10,000 and going to a local strip club and he denied that he ever touched her or pulled her hair, nor did he remembers that she had a bloody nose or lip from the incident.
After the interview, Jones joked with officers that “he would like to take us all on and see what we could do” before he faked like he was going to run away. He was advised that it wasn’t a joking matter and he would be tased if he feinted running away again. He was later released on bond and is due back in court on Oct. 26.
Jones posted a video to his Instagram stories of himself lifting weights with Randy Newman’s song “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” playing. In that story, he posted some statements from which he tried giving all his followers a message.
“I have way too much trauma to consume alcohol, my brain simply can’t handle it anymore. I will leave alcohol in my past forever.”
“Turn this nightmare into the best thing to ever happen in my life”
“Now is the time to work harder than ever”
“What the devil means for bad, God means for good.”
“Get right back on my horse.”
