ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- UFC light heavyweight champion Jon 'Bones' Jones was charged with battery, which stemmed from an alleged incident at TD's Eubank Showclub.
A criminal complaint states that a cocktail waitress told the responding officer that Jones slapped her in her private area before sitting her down on his lap and kissing her on the neck.
The woman also complained about Jones getting rough with her. She said that he put her in a rear-naked choke, picked her up and turned her around in the air.
The woman said after Jones put her down, he slapped her in her private area again. The woman also stated to the officer that she told Jones he needed to pay her $100 if he was going to "smack her."
The woman said the alleged incident, which she describes as "complicated," ended when Jones left the establishment.
A bench warrant was issued for Jones' arrest after he failed to show up for court on the battery charge. A spokesperson for Jones said that the MMA fighter, who trains in Albuquerque, was unaware of the charge until it was brought to his attention by the media.
"The media told Mr. Jones about a false accusation launched against him and that paperwork had been sent to an incorrect address. However, after receiving the documents from the press, Mr. Jones immediately paid the small fee, and he, and multiple witnesses, stand ready to factually refute the malicious lies being told about him to the public,” said Jones' spokesperson James Hallinan.
