Connor McGregor was involved in an altercation with a fan on Monday. He was arrested after smashing the fan's phone.


UFC superstar Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami on Monday. His arrest was the result of an alleged altercation with a fan.

The fan apparently wanted to take a selfie with him. The MMA fighter allegedly smacked the man's phone out of his hand and smashing it on the ground. Police revealed he now faces two felony charges.


The incident happened outside of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. The man approached McGregor with his mobile phone and attempted to take a photo with him. The arrest affidavit says the scuffle happened at around 5 p.m.

McGregor, 30, allegedly slapped the man's phone to the floor before stomping on it several times and walking away with it. The fighter was taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County and charged with two felony charges of strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief over $1,000.


He was released on Monday evening after posting $12,500 bond. His defense lawyer, Samuel Rabin, confirmed the incident saying his client:

"was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation."

The arrest comes just after the Irish UFC champion completed court-ordered community service in connection to a case from last April. The case was due to a video going on a rampage that injured another fighter at Brooklyn's Barclays Center and McGregor pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.
