Jon Jones was arrested a week ago for domestic violence in Las Vegas, and details that have since emerged outline a disturbing scene of the alleged incident involving him and his fiancée Jessie Moses.
On Friday, TMZ shared the audio of the 911 call made on behalf of Moses after Jones allegedly assaulted her at Caesars Palace. A guard told the 911 dispatcher that Moses was “bleeding from nose and mouth” but refused medical treatment other than first aid. The security guard said that Moses was on the casino floor with her three children and refused to go back to her hotel room.
“He’s actually a professional MMA fighter, Jonathan Jones, and she refuses to go back into the room,” the officer said. “We’re trying to help her pack her things, and she just doesn’t want to go back.”
The guard said he thought Jones was still in the room. He described the situation as “a little weird” because Moses sought help but did not admit that she had been attacked.
According to a police report released Tuesday, Moses admitted to the Las Vegas police that Jones had gotten “a little physical” with her. She said she and Jones got into an argument after the former UFC champion returned from the strip club and was “not very happy”. Although Moses had blood on her lip and clothing, she attributed it to “dry lips.”
Police found blood on the bed when Moses took them to the hotel room where the alleged incident took place. Moses told police that Jones pulled her hair as she was about to leave with the three children.
Jones was charged with domestic battery and vehicle tampering. The latest charge stemmed from the 34-year-old allegedly headbutting a patrol car during his arrest.
Jones posted on his Instagram story on Tuesday that he has renounced alcohol and “will make this nightmare the best thing that ever happened in my life.”
The arrest was not Jones’ first. He was arrested last year for DWI and gun possession. He reached a plea deal in that case that resulted in house arrest, probation, outpatient therapy and a fine. Jones also had a DUI in 2012, a hit-and-run incident in 2015, and numerous failed drug tests.
