  • Conor Mc Gregor mugshot Miami Beach arrest

McGregor's attorney sent CBS Miami a statement saying the superstar is cooperating with police. He then allegedly picked up the damaged phone and left with it.

The victim reportedly told police the phone was worth $1,000.

At this time, there is no indication of a timetable for McGregor's return and whether this recent arrest may put fight plans on hold until everything is resolved.

Earlier in 2018, McGregor made headlines after he participated in a brawl with Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, after which both fighters were penalized with fines and temporary disqualification.

According to the police report, seen by Independent.ie, the incident occurred while McGregor and the complainant had been exiting the Fontainebleau Hotel.

Police are reported to have spent the day investigating the incident before arresting McGregor on Monday evening at a home in Miami Beach.

Surveillance cameras recorded the incident, according to the Miami Herald.

"I just want to say I'm thankful to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward", McGregor told reporters outside of the NY courthouse.

He pled guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to community service and an anger management course. McGregor threw a moving dolly at a bus full of UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and the entire scene was caught on tape.

In late January, McGregor was suspended six months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, retroactive to his role in an October 6 brawl with Khabib Nurmagomedov, who won their lightweight championship bout at UFC 229.
