Conor McGregor is arrested ‘for smashing a fan’s phone’

Conor McGregor is arrested ‘for smashing a fan’s phone’”

McGregor is charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief after taking a cellphone of a man attempting to take his picture.

MMA brawler Conor McGregor has issued a mea culpa - of sorts - after being accused of pulverizing a fan's phone in Miami.

With only global superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, LeBron James, Lionel Messi, and Neymar ahead of him, it's pretty clear that the former UFC dual-weight champion's status has shot into the stratosphere.

"He came to shake my hand and as soon as he comes to shake my hand he pulls me in and grabs my phone and starts smashing it", Abdirzk said on the video.

"[McGregor] was just like, 'Get the f**k out my face". You better listen to what Conor says.' McGregor picked the phone up, put it in his pocket, laughed, and then he got in his SUV and they drove off. All of his security guards literally surrounded me, pushed me out of the way. That's when the hotel manager came.

Abdirzk, who valued the phone at $1,000 in the police report, said it was more about what was on the phone that hurts him.

Abdirzak then accused McGregor of stealing the phone and jumped into a vehicle, with the Brit anxious that he will never see the contents of his phone again which he stated contained pictures of his son.

McGregor posted a photo with a short caption to his Instagram on Tuesday, just hours after being released on US$12,500 bond.

McGregor recently completed his court-ordered community service in NY following his arrest for throwing a metal dolly at the bus window where UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov was a passenger at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in April. Samuel Robin, his lawyer, said: "His client was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement".
