Conor McGregor got arrested…again.
Unfortunately, it would not be a normal week in the world of MMA without McGregor getting arrested. This time it was for alleged dangerous driving.
Irish newspaper Independent reported on Wednesday that McGregor was detained in west Dublin while driving his Bentley Continental GT.
“McGregor has a number of road traffic convictions, is understood to have been traveling along the N4 between Lucan and Palmerstown when he came to garda attention,” their report read. “He was pulled over by gardaí and subsequently arrested for road traffic offenses. The Irish Independent understands his luxury car was also seized from him on the roadside following his arrest but has since been returned to him.”
He was brought to Lucan garda station, where he has since been charged and released on bail.
The report continued: “he has been charged with dangerous driving and will appear before Blanchardstown district court next month. He previously appeared before the same court in 2017 when he was fined €400 for speeding.”
If McGregor is convicted, according to the Independent, he faces a maximum punishment of a fine of up to €5,000 or six months imprisonment or both.
McGregor is still recovering from his broken leg, which he suffered at UFC 264 last year. He has also been in the headlines saying he will waltz into a title fight when he returns and hopes to fight Kamaru Usman.
