Who is Jon Jones' wife Jesse Moses? UFC star arrested for domestic violence in Vegas
Jon Jones was arrested for domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle
UFC star Jon Jones was arrested early morning on September 24 in Las Vegas for domestic violence and tampering with a vehicle. According to a report, law enforcement received a call from Caesars Palace at around 5:45 am and cops met the UFC star at the hotel. He was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence and injuring or tampering with a vehicle which is a felony.
Jones was in Vegas because his 2013 fight against Alexander Gustafsson is being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. What led to the superstar's arrest is yet unclear but this is not the first time he's found himself on the wrong side of the law. In March 2020, he was arrested and charged with aggravated DWI (driving while intoxicated) and negligent use of a firearm. His woes with the law started back in May 2012 when he crashed his car through a telephone pole in Binghamton, New York. He had pleaded guilty to drunk driving. Jones is not the only UFC star to make headlines for their personal life. In July this year, UFC star Jorge Masvidal made headlines after being accused of cheating on his wife. Professionally, Conor McGregor made it to the trending lists after his fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 saw a shocking ending. McGregor suffered what seemed to be a broken leg after rolling over his ankle in the first round.
Jones is no stranger to run-ins with the law. In 2015, he came under fire for a hit-and-run incident and was arrested in his hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he was charged with a felony for escaping the scene and later smoking a cannabis pipe in his car. Jones was sentenced to 18-month probation and community service. He was also fined $50,00 for a brawl with Daniel Cormier before their scheduled face-off in the ring back in 2014.
Who is Jon Jones's wife Jesse Moses?
Jon Jones has been with Jesse Moses also known as Jesse Bones Jones for several years. While there isn't any indication of when they got married, Jones started to refer to Jesse who is reportedly a stay-at-home mom who leads a very private life, as his wife on social media. The two are said to have attended Endicott High School in New York, and that's where they met and began to date. They attended different colleges but continued to be with each other.
The couple had their first child, a daughter, in 2008. This was the same year Jones emerged as an MMA superstar. The couple has three daughters together - Leah, Carmen, and Olivia. Jones does spend a lot of time away from his family due to his career and in a past interview, he spoke about missing out on a lot. “With the girls being such a young age, not seeing them for even two weeks, I miss out on a lot. They change so much in that short amount of time. We Skype every day. I make funny videos for them to see daddy," he said.
