Troubled UFC lightweight champion Conor Mcgregor who stormed the UFC 223 media day shattered bus window who was transporting UFC fighters, which left two fighters injured. Late Thursday night, Mcgregor turned himself to NYPD and was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.
On Friday, he appeared in a Brooklyn court and was ordered to return to face charges on June 14. McGregor was released on $50,000 bond.
McGregor’s mayhem resulted in three scheduled bouts canceled at UFC 223.
Mcgregor has yet to break his silence following a bus attack full of UFC fighters at the Barclays Center that landed him in jail.
However, Conor Mcgregor’s manager Audie A. Attar released a statement via social media saying “the matter is in the hands of law enforcement,”:

“So much rumor and misinformation about my client, Conor McGregor. The matter is in the hands of law enforcement and I cannot really say more. Conor is a great father, a fiercely loyal friend, and one of the best athletes in the world. He looks forward to getting back to fighting as soon as possible.”
UFC president Dana White went on to say that Mcgregor was sorry about the people that sustained injury as a result of his antics, but was not sorry about the incident itself.
“Most of the things (in the text messages) I would rather not say, and probably can’t say, on TV,” White told ESPN. “He was apologetic about the people that he wasn’t trying to hurt, but he felt like the Khabib thing had to be done.”
Conor McGregor clearly has a lot of issues to deal with right now so it’s intriguing to read that he’s ‘looking forward’ to getting back into the Octagon ASAP.
