Former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami on Monday, according to multiple reports.
McGregor, 30, was charged with two felony counts of strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief according to Miami Beach Police.
Leaving his hotel shortly after 5 a.m. Monday morning a 22-year old man attempted to take McGregor’s picture.
McGregor slapped the phone out of the individual’s hand, stomped on the phone several times, before picking up the phone and leaving the scene.
McGregor was later found at his residence, arrested, and then later released on $12,500 bond.
Conor McGregor’s Defense Attorney Sam Rabin said in a statement,
“Last evening, Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”
McGregor is no stranger with being involved with law enforcement.
He entered a plea deal for his April 2018 incident at the Barclays in Brooklyn, NY for throwing a dolly at a bus and injuring several UFC fighters.
He recently completed his plea deal that required a one year clean record, five days of community service and anger management class attendance. His latest incident won’t affect that deal, sources say.
McGregor, is one of only six fighters to win UFC championships in multiple divisions.
