Former UFC Champion Conor McGregor In Hot Water Again After Armed Robbery Arrest

Conor McGregor, the former featherweight and lightweight Ultimate Fighting Champion, is in trouble with the law once again after the Irishman was arrested in Miami, Florida and charged with strong-armed robbery and misdemeanour criminal mischief (BBC).

He’s been arrested for allegedly damaging a fan’s $1000 phone, which is said to have took place at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel at 5:20 local time.

The BBC has obtained the police report explaining why McGregor has found himself behind bars once again;

"The victim attempted to take a picture of the defendant with his cell phone. The defendant slapped the victim's phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor" 

"The defendant then stomped on the victim's phone several times, damaging it. The defendant then picked up the victim's phone and walked away with it, depriving him of it. The defendant was located and arrested."

McGregor’s last professional fight came all the way back at the beginning of October, when he was defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov via submission.

It was in the lead-up to that UFC 223 bout that McGregor found himself in cuffs after he attacked his opponent’s bus in Brooklyn, NY, with the incident memorably recorded and circulated on social media.

McGregor was sentenced to anger management training and five days community service.

The 30-year-old currently holds a 21-4-0 record, but it now seems it’s his criminal record is the one being extended after the latest altercation in the Sunshine State.

He’s a fighter, but he may have fought the law, and the law has seemingly won… again.
