UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones has denied threatening a DFSI employee during a regular drug test.

On Friday, several reports claimed that Jones and a DFSI employee had a heated argument during a regular drug test. It was claimed that ‘Bones’ was potentially intoxicated and he allegedly threatened the person and took their phone. After leaving Jones’ home, the individual reached out to law enforcement in northeast Albuquerque to formally report the incident.

Shortly after the story spread like fire on social media, Jones jumped on his Instagram account to share his side of the story, posting a shared security camera footage of the drug tester leaving his home and giving him a high-five on her way out.

“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. 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.”
