A shocking new video shows UFC fighter Jon Jones in a heated argument with a police officer after being pulled over for allegedly drag racing. In the video, Jon loses his temper and calls the officer some pretty harsh names. Click inside to WATCH!
Jon Jones, 28, is in hot water after a video of him swearing at a police officer during a traffic stop on Thursday, March 24 in Los Angeles, California was released online. The superstar fighter can be seen verbally disagreeing with the police officer through the camera on his uniform, especially after he is accused of drag racing his Corvette.
Well, this definitely isn’t a good look for UFC fighter Jon Jones. When a police officer accuses him of drag racing another vehicle, the sports celebrity totally loses his cool while defending himself. Eek.
“You are an absolute f–king liar,” Jon tells the officer, who can be heard being equally aggressive with the UFC fighter during the traffic stop. “I can’t wait until you get out of my face. You’re despicable. Pig. You disgust me.”
This all went down after the officer accuses him of revving his engine at a red light, and then taking off at a high speed in a drag race with a Cadillac. When the officer first accuses Jon by asking him why he was drag racing, the fighter laughs in shock. “I did not drag race a Cadillac,” he explains, though the officer continues to question his alleged bad behavior.
Watch the verbal altercation below, which has clearly been edited and lasts nearly three minutes:
It’s definitely worth noting that it’s not until the very end of the video that Jon swears at the officer. Although there is no way to prove — or disprove — that Jon was drag racing, we’re sure he’s going to fight this in court as soon as he can. So far, there is no mention of the altercation with the officer on Jon’s Twitter account.
