Pros react to Jon Jones' latest police run-in, arrest

New, comments

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones turned himself into police Tuesday morning following his latest run-in with the Albuquerque Police Department.

The arrest stemmed from a probation violation due to a controversial incident last week which saw the pound-for-pound great receive five traffic tickets, including one for drag racing. In body camera footage released Monday, a furious Jones called the officer a "f*cking liar" and a "pig," while adamantly denying any wrongdoing. As of this writing, Jones is still scheduled to rematch UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier on April 23 at UFC 197.

While Jones' exploits often draw only contempt from his fellow fighters, that doesn't appear to be the case this time. Mixed among the usual criticism were several fighters who sympathized with Jones as the victim of racial profiling. Check out reaction from the pros below.
