Conor McGregor Arrested for Robbery

Conor McGregor’s ego getting ahead of him. The UFC star was arrested in Miami Beach for strong-armed robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

The arrest came after McGregor allegedly grabbed and smashed a fan’s phone. The guy was taking photos of McGregor outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.

Unlike his bus window smashing incident, this does not appear staged.

His attorney said:

“Last evening Conor McGregor was involved a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”

TMZ has more:

…the owner of the phone was walking out of the hotel at the same time as Conor and as the fan attempted to take a photo, Conor slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the ground. McGregor then allegedly stomped on the phone several times, damaging it.

Conor then walked away with his phone. Haha. Ok. He should’ve taken a pic of his balls and mailed the phone back to him.

So, basically, an overzealous fan got into McGregor’s face, thought he deserved a photo and now has many, smaller pieces of a phone instead of one big phone.

Some fans can be worse than paparazzi. I get celebs are celebs because fans put them there. Do they owe fans anything? Maybe a little. But that doesn’t mean shoving a flash into their face and thinking they owe you.

He’s currently held on $12,500 bail which is pennies to him, so not sure why he hasn’t been bailed out yet. [Update 3/17/19: Also, let’s not forget Conor McGregor’s alleged arrest for rape. Dude better get a handle on his life.]

Dana White must be salivating over this. More press for Conor, more ways to hype a fighter who is on the decline.
