The UFC fighter was charged after he allegedly smashed a fan’s phone around 5 a.m. outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, according to an arrest report. Police said the fan tried to take a picture of McGregor with his phone, and the fighter “slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor.”
The mixed martial arts fighter “then stomped on the victim’s phone several times, damaging it,” the report said. At that point, McGregor allegedly picked up the phone and “walked away with it.”
The fan told investigators the phone cost $1,000.
McGregor, who is from Ireland, was later released from the Turner Guildford Knight Correctional Center in Miami on a $12,000 bond, Fox News confirmed.
The star fighter’s arrest comes shortly after he was suspended from the UFC for six months on Jan. 29 following a brawl with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in October. McGregor was fined $50,000 in addition to his suspension, which is retroactive to Oct. 6.
