UFC megastar Conor McGregor has shared a picture of himself smiling in the back of a Miami police car, after the MMA fighter was arrested for allegedly destroying a fan’s telephone and walking off with it.
Irishman McGregor was detained on Monday after the reported incident with a fan outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel at around 5am.
The former UFC double champion is said to have snatched the fan’s phone, worth $1,000, as he was trying to take a photo, then smashing it and walking away.
Police charged McGregor with one count of strong-arm robbery and one count of criminal mischief.
The Irish star was released the same evening on a $12,500 bail bond.
McGregor himself refused to comment upon his release, but legal representatives said it was a “minor altercation,” and that the fighter “appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”
Although ‘The Notorious’ hasn’t commented directly, he gave an indication of his feelings on Instagram, including a post showing him smiling in police car.
Here’s a closer look:
He is currently in Florida on a family vacation, while he also prepares for his next UFC bout, which is yet to be confirmed.
McGregor is serving a six-month fighting ban which has ruled him out of action until April 9th, handed down after the mass brawl that followed his defeat to Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas in October.
What a fooking nut.
