Earlier this week, Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami after allegedly smashing a fan’s phone. The UFC star was briefly jailed, but released after posting bond.
TMZ has now acquired video of this incident. The clip is undeniably short, but it indeed seems to show McGregor stomping on a phone, and the purported victim pleading to get his phone back amid a swarm of security. See it below:
The owner of the cell phone Conor McGregor allegedly smashed discussed the incident with TMZ earlier this week:
“We ended up at LIV on a Sunday,” he said of his brush with Conor McGregor. ‘Blueface was there so we were just seeing what was popping. There were quite a few A-list celebrities over there, Birdman, Blueface, NFL and a few NBA players over there. So we see McGregor in the club and it was all cool or whatnot. On the way out, we were just waiting for our vehicle from the valet. As soon as we go pick it up, I see Conor McGregor. So I tried to take out my little phone. As soon as I pull out my phone, McGregor comes and he tries to shake my hand. As soon as he went to shake my hand he pulled me in, grabbed my phone and started smashing it. All of his security guards literally surrounded me, pushed me out of the way. And he’s stomping on it, there’s a video that will be released soon. He was being real rude like, ‘Get the fuck out of my face, you don’t just do that.’ So I was like, ‘Sir can I have my phone back?’
“And there was all of his security and entourage around him. I just kept asking if I can have my phone back. They were like, ‘Move man, move, you better listen to what Conor say.’ McGregor then picked up the phone and put it in his pocket, laughed and then he got in his SUV and they drove off. That’s when the hotel manager came.
“I got pictures of my son that I didn’t even save to my iCloud, so that’s what pisses me off the most. Those pictures I am probably not going to ever get again.”
What do you think will come of this latest Conor McGregor incident?
