Conor McGregor Charged With Strong-Arm Robbery After Arrest In Florida

He was charged with felony strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief. After the fighter allegedly slapped it away and then stomped on it, he took the phone without giving it back. According to the report, the victim said the phone is valued at $1,000.

McGregor, a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion who gained further fame by boxing Floyd Mayweather in August 2017, was arrested after detectives investigated the incident during the day. The two charges came with bonds of $7,500 and $5,000.

Police say McGregor destroyed a fan's cellphone when the man tried to take a photo of McGregor.

The UFC star was detained by police on Monday after he allegedly stole and smashed a fan's phone outside a Miami Beach hotel.

According to McGregor's arrest affidavit, Miami Beach Police apprehended him just before 6 p.m. today.

Anthony began his season with the Houston Rockets before being shut down after 10 games due to on-court chemistry issues. After the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, their record dropped to 30-35.

Alongside a photo of himself leaving the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in the south Florida city, McGregor wrote: "Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on. Mr McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation".

Incensed by the way his teammate Artem Lobov was approached by Khabib Nurmagomedov ahead of UFC 223, McGregor and his entourage flew from Ireland to Brooklyn and set about getting revenge.

Originally charged with disorderly conduct, McGregor reportedly pleaded guilty and served three days of anger management and five days community service.

McGregor is still suspended from UFC due to the post-fight brawl at UFC 229, but he is eligible to return to the octagon starting April 6.
