Not a good look for the star linebacker.

Some disturbing video has emerged of UK linebacker Jordan Jones from Saturday’s win over Southern Miss.

A fan has posted video of Jones having an altercation with Southern Miss fans. It appears in one video that Jones attempted to spit on a fan, though the video is cut off enough that you can’t definitively tell if he was.

While it’s not clear if Jones was spitting at a fan, it’s clear he was at least aiming in that direction. Even if it didn’t hit a fan, it’s still an inexcusable act.

Whatever happened, it’s a bad look for him to be getting into altercations with fans in the stands. Mark Stoops won’t be happy with this, as it’s a bad look for the team when a defensive leader like Jones does this. Jones is an All-American-caliber player, but there’s no excuse for these kinds of acts.

We’ll update this story as more details emerge.
