Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor was arrested this past Monday after allegedly grabbing a cell phone from a person attempting to take a photo of him with it. The UFC star would then stomp on the phone multiple times before picking up said phone and leaving the area with it.
McGregor has since been released from police custody late last night after posting a bond that totaled $12,500 according to MMA Fighting.
The fighter, also according to MMA Fighting, is set to be back in court on Wednesday, April 10 to answer to the charges levied against him. Those charges include strong-armed robbery, a second-degree felony, and criminal mischief, a third-degree felony.
This arrest comes at a bad time for the fighter, who recently finished a community service sentence in the state of New York after the UFC 223 bus attack. McGregor is also in the midst of serving a six month suspension issued by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
Since the most recent arrest for McGregor took place in the state of Florida, it is not expected to impact the closed case in New York or the suspension in Nevada.
