UFC star Jon Jones ‘arrested for domestic violence and tampering with vehicle’ in Las Vegas

UFC star Jon Jones has reportedly been arrested for domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle in Las Vegas.

Cops told TMZ that they received a call from Caesers Palace at around 5.45am on Friday morning.

When they arrived, they made contact with the UFC star before he was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence and injuring or tampering with a vehicle.

The outlet reported that Jones is currently behind bars at a county jail, however, did not specify which one.

Jones was in the area as his legendary 2013 fight against Alexander Gustafsson is being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

In March last year, Jones pled guilty to driving while intoxicated following an arrest in New Mexico.

The fighter was arrested when cops found him alone in his Jeep, where he appeared to be intoxicated and admitted to drinking earlier that night.

He struck a deal with prosecutors where he agreed to sign a one-year supervised probation and said he will serve 96 hours in a community custody program.
