UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami Beach on Monday evening on charges of strong-arm robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief after an altercation involving a fan outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel in the wee hours of the morning, according to the Miami Herald.
Police told the Herald that a fan was taking pictures outside the hotel, home to LIV nightclub, when McGregor allegedly took the fan’s phone and smashed it around 5 a.m. The star fighter was booked on Monday evening in a Miami-Dade jail.
McGregor is currently serving the last month of his six-month suspension for his role in a post-fight brawl after his loss at UFC 229 to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and can return to the Octagon in early April.
UFC has not released any statements on McGregor’s arrest; it’ll be interesting to see if any punishment will be headed his way.
