Here it is … footage showing Conor McGregor stomping out a cell phone in front of the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami — and it’s LOUD.
The incident leading to McGregor’s arrest took place outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel when a fan approached him for a photo. The incident occurred shortly after 5:00 a.m. as he was leaving the resort which is home to the popular nightclub LIV.
McGregor was not immediately arrested but was picked up later in the day and charged with felony strong-armed robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
Just a year ago, McGregor was arrested on two felony charges in Brooklyn, New York for an incident at the Barclays Center where he through a hand truck through a window of a bus carrying other fighters, including rival Khabib Nurmagomedov. He reached a settlement in that case and was sentenced to three days of anger management courses and five days of community service.
