Conor McGregor arrested in Miami Beach, accused of smashing fan’s phone

Former UFC champ Conor McGregor was charged with felony strong-armed robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief after an altercation with a fan early Monday morning, according to the Miami Beach police.

McGregor allegedly “slapped” the phone out of a man’s hand – who had attempted to take the 30-year-old Irish fighter’s picture outside of a Miami Beach night club around 5 a.m. Monday.

McGregor allegedly proceeded to stomp on the mobile phone several times, according to the police report. McGregor then picked up the smashed phone and walked away.

 

The incident was caught on surveillance cameras and McGregor was arrested later Monday at his Miami Beach home. The Miami-Herald was first to report the news.

McGregor was arrested last April and faced multiple charges related to his attack on a bus ahead of a UFC event in Brooklyn. Prosecutors eventually agreed to drop two felonies and other charges as part of a plea deal McGregor agreed to in July.
