MMA Fighter Conor McGregor Has Been Arrested in Florida for Stealing a Cellphone

(MIAMI) — Mixed martial artist and boxer Conor McGregor has been arrested in South Florida for stealing the cellphone of someone who was trying to take his photo, authorities said.

According to a Miami Beach police report, the 30-year-old McGregor was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with robbery and criminal mischief. An attorney for McGregor called the altercation “minor” and said the popular fighter would cooperate with authorities.

McGregor was leaving the Fontainebleau Miami Beach shortly after 5 a.m. Monday when a 22-year-old man attempted to take a picture of McGregor, the police report said. Police said McGregor slapped the phone out of the man’s hand and then stomped on it several times. McGregor then grabbed the phone and left the area, the report said. Police later found McGregor at his local address.

McGregor was being held on $ 12,500 bail.

“Last evening Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation involving a cellphone that resulted in a call to law enforcement,” Samuel J. Rabin Jr., a Miami-based attorney representing McGregor, said in a statement. “Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”

McGregor, who’s from Ireland, is the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion and one of the biggest draws in MMA. He returned to UFC last fall after a hiatus during which he made his boxing debut, a loss to Floyd Mayweather. He was suspended from UFC for six months and fined $ 50,000 for a brawl after his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October.

Conor McGregor Dresses to Impress and Pitch New David August Suit Collection

MAN WITH A BRAND: On the field Sunday pre-Super Bowl LIII, Conor McGregor was tough to miss wearing a custom David August lavender jacket and tie with black pants.
The UFC featherweight and lightweight champion’s 18-month-old son was dressed identically in custom suits, thanks to the designer David August Heil. As is pretty much always the case with any celebrity making such a mega-appearance — and Sunday’s game would qualify — the wardrobe choice was no coincidence. The fiery Irish MMA fighter launched a cobranded collection with August at the end of last year in time for his showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov. The collection included a $ 39 “Eff You” T-shirt, an $ 87 “Whoop Ass” embroidered hooded sweatshirt and a $ 39 newspaper-inspired “August McGregor Post” T-shirt imprinted with a McGregor quote, “When I say something is going to happen, it’s going to happen.”
But back to the Super Bowl: McGregor decided to wear purple “to remain neutral, as he is a fan of both teams but wanted to wear something to celebrate the occasion,” according to a David August spokesman. To take that neutrality literally, McGregor might be a little color blind since red and blue make purple and red is minimal in

Snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan could be the next sportsman to jump into the Jungle after admitting last year he’d love to go.

He said: “I would, a million per cent, I’d do anything now, I would love it.

“I’m up for it. I used to think, ‘no, I couldn’t do that, I’ve got to be a pure snooker player,’ but you get to a stage when you think, ‘This is painful and that’s all fun, a good laugh’.

He added: “Why not? Let’s have a bit of the jungle. They’ll think I’m a gorilla when they look at me and I take my T-shirt off.”

Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo was crowned the Queen of the Jungle in 2017.

Georgia, known as Toff, told Ant and Dec in the immediate aftermath of her win: “I don’t know what to say.

“Obviously, I didn’t think anyone would like me, never mind… sorry, I’m really taken aback.

“Thank you so much, I don’t know what to say, I’m really shocked!”

The show was marred with claims that the campmates were bullying Iain Lee who finished third.

Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas came second.

UFC 229 Erupts in Chaos After Khabib Defeats Conor McGregor, Several People Arrested

Harry How/Getty

The main event of UFC 229, the mixed martial arts championship event on Saturday evening at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, quickly devolved into chaos.

After a fourth round that saw UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov rain down blows on his loudmouthed opponent Conor McGregor, the Dagestani fighter got the Irishman into a brutal headlock, ultimately getting him to submit. Then, Khabib mouthed some words to McGregor, marched over to the edge of the Octagon fence, threw his mouthpiece out, and began shouting at McGregor’s team in the crowd.

Before you could say uh oh, Khabib had scaled the fence and attacked McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Danis, and a full-on melee ensued. Members of Khabib’s team then entered the Octagon over the fence and sucker-punched McGregor. Both fighters had to be escorted out of the arena separately, and there was no belt presentation. According to UFC President Dana White, three members of Khabib’s team have been arrested over the incident. This is a developing situation, and criminal charges may be filed.
