Footage has emerged of Conor McGregor handcuffed following being charged with assault in New York today.
The UFC fighter has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief as a result of him violently attacking a bus at a UFC media event last night.
The Dubliner handed himself into the NYPD and is set to appear in court today, and has now been spotted being led, handcuffed into a car.

UFC boss Dana White made a statement about the incident today, saying it was “This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the company.”
“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,” he said in a statement.
“You can imagine he’s going to be sued beyond belief. This was a real bad career move by him.”
