UFC star McGregor arrested after allegedly destroying fan's phone

UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested and charged in Miami after allegedly smashing a fan's phone.

Miami Beach Police charged McGregor with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief on Monday.

McGregor allegedly attempted to stomp on the phone several times after a fan tried to take a picture outside the Fontainebleau Hotel around 05:00 local time.

The 30-year-old Irishman – who avoided jail time after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct following an incident prior to UFC 223 in Brooklyn last year – then picked up the phone and walked away with it, according to the police report.
