Some new and somewhat bizarre details have emerged regarding the battery charge levied against UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, who is accused of accosting a female employee at TD’s Eubank Showclub in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Jones allegedly made unwanted advances toward the cocktail waitress, put her in a “tight rear-naked choke hold,” then picked her up off the ground and spun her around “like a wrestling match,” according to TMZ.
His accuser then claims “piece of shit” Jones placed her on the bar and slapped her vagina, something that apparently requires a $100 deposit that he refused to pay (or just flat-out ignored).
Jones, who was at the strip club with his brother and NFL star Chandler Jones, insists he’s not in any trouble. In addition, his spokesperson is confident “Bones” and his witnesses will easily refute her “malicious lies” about last April’s incident.
Since the charge is classified as a petty misdemeanor, the legal process is unlikely to interfere with Jones’ personal or professional life, so until we have more information on this still-developing case, it should be all systems go for the champ’s December return.
