UFC's Jon Jones set for court after drag racing row (VIDEO)
As the video below shows, the Rochester-born slugger was pulled over by police and will face court after being accused of drag racing.
The exchange, which happened on March 24 in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, ends with Jones insulting the officer, who responds by making clear his disdain for the UFC star.
Jones denies that he was drag racing and claims that he revved his engine at fight fans that spotted him at traffic lights.

Jones is set for an explosive comeback to face old nemesis and current world light-heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 197 in Las Vegas on April 23.
