UFC star Jon Jones is in more trouble with the law after a video emerged of the fighter embroiled in a war of words with a police officer.

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.

The 28-year-old was previously banished from the sport after testing positive for cocaine and being caught up in a hit-and-run scandal.
