Conor McGregor has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief following an incident at a UFC event in New York.
The Crumlin man handed himself into authorities in Brooklyn after he was caught on camera, along with his entourage, attacking a bus holding UFC members leaving a media event.
The MMA champion will now appear in court in New York today to face the four charges brought against him.
A spokesperson for the NYPD confirmed that the 29-year-old handed himself into authorities following the incident, and that at least one person on the bus had been injured.
“What happened here today is Conor and approximately 20 guys apparently were let in through the doors, they stormed the building and got down to the loading docks where fighters were getting on the buses and started to attack the buses, throwing trash cans and things like that,” Dana White said in a statement.
“This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the company.
“You can imagine he’s going to be sued beyond belief. This was a real bad career move by him.”
