Just outside of The Mirage in Las Vegas is where it went bad for Jon Jones just hours after things were so great for him.
New video shows former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones head-butting a police car and screaming obscenities at officers on the Las Vegas strip after being detained back in September.
Jones could also be heard tossing out racial slurs at the cops, according to a report from the Las Vegas Review Journal, which obtained the body-worn camera footage.
The vehicle charge stemmed from “a medium size dent as well as chipping of some of the paint on the vehicle” that Jones head-butted after his emotional outburst.
Jones flew into a rage after being handcuffed and only grew more agitated as he continued being questioned. He repeatedly said he had just come from his UFC Hall of Fame induction and accused the officers of targeting him because he was Black.
“Humiliating me [on] my Hall of Fame night,” Jones is heard saying on the video. “You fcking nerd. I hate you. I hate you! I hate you! You fcking nerd. I hate you so much.
“Say your name publicly. … You turned me in my Hall of Fame night, just because I’m big and Black. And what did I do? …. I came from my Hall of Fame ceremony, and I’m Black, and I did nothing to you.”
Jones tells an officer, “Bro, hang me. Hurt me and kill me. What did I do?” Then, he cries, “A Black man can’t drink? Getting elected into the Hall of Fame, and this is what I’ve got?”
He then began jumping up and down and is told to relax before yelling, “I hate you!” and striking the car with his head.
Jones was arrested and taken to jail after resisting arrest, according to a police report of the incident. He was released the same night after posting bail.
He has not fought in the UFC since a light heavyweight title defense in February 2020. He later relinquished the belt amid a contract dispute with the promotion.
