  • Police report states that a summons for the allegations will be issued to “Bones”

Jon Jones spoke up in his defense amid allegations stating that he threatened to kill an anti-doping officer sent to his home for a standard drug testing.

Jones came up with some proof

Reports are now swirling that Jones was “extremely intoxicated” when a representative from Drug Free Sport International, the UFC’s recently established official anti-doping organization, visited his residence to perform a routine drug test. It was noted that “Bones” allegedly threatened the tester and was accused of taking her mobile phone during the altercation.

The event took place towards the end of March but was not reported to the Albuquerque Police Department until Friday, April 5. Following the rapid spread of the news. Jones was prompted to address the allegations by issuing a statement on his Instagram account with a clip taken from his home security camera.

In it, the UFC heavyweight champ could be seen walking the testers out of his house and even giving one of them a “high five.” In Jones’ defense, he admitted that he was “frustrated” by the agent’s “unprofessionalism” but contrary to the reports, the entire process ended peacefully.

“I want to address reports about me allegedly threatening a drug tester’s life and taking a phone, I want to clarify that there is a video showing both drug testers leaving my home after the testing session, where we exchanged a high five and a hug,” Jones wrote. “Although I was frustrated with the unprofessionalism and used profanity out of frustration it ended friendly and amicably, nothing threatening at all. I was actually celebrating a friend’s birthday party at my home, and I believe it’s perfectly normal to celebrate in the comfort of my own home.

“I must say, this particular tester behaved quite unprofessionally and even breached standard protocol along with HIPAA laws. Throughout my 20 years of being subjected to drug tests, I have never encountered such an incident with a DCO officer before.”

What the police report states is different

Despite Jones’ statement and proof, MMA journalist Aaron Bronsteter revealed a screenshot of an excerpt from the incident report filed by the agent to the Albuquerque PD courtesy of Officer Gilbert Gallego.

According to the excerpt, “a summons will be issued to Jones on accusations of assault and interference with communications” and the anti-doping control officer confirmed that Jones appeared intoxicated, threatened to take her life and took her phone.

Bronsteter later provided another update about Jones’ situation. In a post on X, Bronsteter revealed that it is also being investigated whether or not “Bones” violated the “section 2.5.1 of the UFC’s Anti-Doping policy” which states:

“Intentionally interfering of attempting to interfere with a Doping Control official, providing fraudulent information to UFC or the Independent Administrator or intimidating or attempting to intimidate a witness.”


The UFC has yet to comment or release an official statement regarding Jones’ situation. As it stands, the UFC is eager to reschedule Jones vs. Stipe Miocic title bout.
