Known by the nicknames “The Notorious” and “Mystic Mac”, Conor McGregor recently gained the media attention but not for a good cause. He was charged for allegedly damaging his fan’s property during his family vacation.

Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor releases a statement on his arrest in Miami on 11th March 2019. He thanked his fans and followers through his Instagram after his release.

Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on.

I love my fans dearly. Thank you all

The 30-year old was arrested in South Florida because of allegedly slapping a phone valued at $1,000 out of a fan’s hand and stomping on it. He allegedly blew his stack when an MMA fan, Ahmed Abdirzak, attempted to take a picture of him outside Fountainebleu Hotel in Miami Beach.

McGregor was charged with strong-armed robbery, a second-degree felony, and criminal mischief, a third-degree felony. He was released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center after posting $12,500 bond later in the day.

Conor has been in Miami along with family members for several days to celebrate his mother Margaret’s 60th birthday. The trip is joined by his father Tony, sister Erin and long-time partner Dee Devlin.
