Conor McGregor arrested in Miami

March 11, 2019

Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami Monday morning according to the Miami Beach Police Department.

McGregor was charged for strong arm robbery and criminal mischief which are both felonies.  According to the arrest affidavit, McGregor and the victim were at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami.  When McGregor left, the victim attempted to take a picture with him with his cell phone.  McGregor knocked the phone out of his hand, stomped on the phone several times and then took it away from him.  The victim claims that the phone was worth $1,000.

MMA Fighting has obtained a statement from McGregor’s attorney in which he describes the incident as a “minor altercation.”

Payout Perspective:

This incident seems minimal compared to the bus incident in New Jersey last year.  Yet, the piling on of criminal incidents cannot sit well with authorities.  There’s likely a story from McGregor about the reason for what he did.  One has to assume that McGregor will not be punished extensively for this so long as he pays for the damage.
