ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones will have to take anger management and driver improvement classes and do more community service for violating his probation from a previous hit-and-run crash.

Jones appeared in court Thursday. He was wearing an orange jumpsuit and had his hands cuffed after having spent three days in jail.

His latest legal troubles came after being stopped last week for allegedly drag racing in downtown Albuquerque, not far from the gym where he trains. He was issued five traffic citations but has denied the allegations.

His attorneys reiterated during Thursday's hearing that they believe the citations are bogus and that Jones was profiled.

Jones is scheduled to fight Daniel Cormier at the end of April for the light heavyweight title.
