Irishman Releases Statement After Miami Incident
On Monday morning Conor Mcgregor was arrested and later charged with two felonies, strong-arm robbery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief by Miami Beach Police for damaging fan’s phone and then taking it along with him.
The alleged victim and MMA fan Ahmed Abdirzak, told Miami police that Mcgregor sacks his phone it was worth of $1,000. Abdirzak was attempted to take a picture with Irishman outside Fountainebleu Hotel in Miami Beach when Conor allegedly slapped it from his hand, according to report.
The altercation occurred after Irishman was done celebrating his mom’s 60th birthday. McGregor has since released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional center jail after posting a $12,500 bail.
Shortly after the bail, Mcgregor issues a statement keeping his words small and sweet.
Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on.
I love my fans dearly. Thank you all ❤️
Mcgregor is no stranger to criminal act process in the U.S. We all remember his infamous bus attack which led to his arrest in New York back in 2018 after throwing a metal dolly at a bus carrying other UFC fighters, including Khabib Nurmagomodev. Later he strikes a deal with his lawyers and attended anger management classes.
Moreover, he’s currently serving his suspension from (NSAC) Nevada State Athletic Commission for taking part in UFC 229 post-fight brawl. He’s eligible to return to competition in April.
McGregor has been training for some time in Florida for his Octagon return this year. He’s linked to fighting Donald Cerrone, but the bout is delaying as UFC planning to book this bout as a co-headline, but Irishman wants the main event slot.
In the wake of this incident, an immediate fighting future of Mcgregor is uncertain.
