Conor McGregor Arrested, Being Questioned For “Attempted Sexual Assault”

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor has found himself on the wrong side of the law again after authorities in Corsica arrested McGregor for “attempted sexual assault.”

A report from AFP Sport states that McGregor was initially arrested by the police for indecent exposure, but an update provided a short time later would reveal that the retired UFC fighter was arrested for attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition.

The AFP Sport also got the following statement from the prosecutor’s office:

“Following a complaint filed on Sept. 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor (sic) was the subject of a hearing by the police.”

McGregor was in Corsica to take part in a 24 hours charity water bike race to help promote awareness for water safety but has now been forced to withdraw due to the arrest.

One of McGregor’s representatives issued the following statement to TMZ Sports on McGregor’s arrest:

“Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released.”

There has been no statement yet from the UFC and no further details on McGregor’s arrest have been revealed at this time.
