Report: UFC champ Jon Jones charged with the battery at a discounted incident at strip club


Again, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is in hot water with the law.

KRQE News 13 reported late Sunday night. Jones has not been arrested.

A cocktail waitress, who worked at TD's Eubank Showclub in Albuquerque called police to her home and alleged that "slapped her inappropriately" and "pulled her down to her lap and kissed her neck," for the report. The waitress in a chokehold and lifted her off the ground, she told police.

Jones failed to appear at a bond arraignment at the Albuquerque Metropolitan Court on June 11, according to online court records. The warrant was issued against him the following day.

The court attempted to send Jones a letter later that month, but it bounced back June 24, for online records.

Jones paid the $ 300 Sunday bond at the Metropolitan Court, for the KRQE News 13 report.

A Jones spokesperson told KRQE News 13 that "Bones" first heard of the charge and warrant when the media outlet informed him of it.

"Today, the media told Mr. Jones about false accusation launched against him and that paperwork had been sent to an incorrect address," James Hallinan said in a statement to KRQE 13 News. "However, after receiving the documents from the press, Mr. Jones immediately went to pay the small fee, and he, and multiple witnesses, stood ready for factually refusing to be told about him to the public."

The warrant was lifted after Jones paid the bond Sunday, for the report.

Bloody Elbow has obtained documents from Jones' case, which you can find below.

Jones has had multiple run-ins with the law, including in 2015 when he was involved in a hit-and-run incident with a pregnant woman, and to DWI charge in 2012.
