Jon Jones Cited For Drag Racing, Calls Cop “Liar” and “Pig”
Fox Sports confirms that just days after MMA Star Jon Jones wrapped up a traffic violation in New Mexico, the former light heavyweight champion was cited for five different tickets including drag racing late last week in Albuquerque.
Police stated that Jones was cited for drag racing, exhibition of speed (which translates to revving his engine with the intention of speeding), a modified exhaust system, an issue with his license plate (which Jones explained was a cover over his plate that obstructed part of the information from being seen), and failure to maintain a lane (swerving).
Jones denied any wrongdoing, saying he revved his engine to acknowledge a fan who was alongside him on the road, before revealing that he got very emotional and lashed out at the officer who made the stop.
Jones is currently in training camp preparing for his UFC 197 showdown with Daniel Cormier with the light heavyweight title on the line.
