Conor McGregor arrested in Dublin over “dangerous driving”
UFC star Conor McGregor, who is training for a comeback, was arrested Tuesday for “dangerous driving” in his homeland, with his €170,000 Bentley seized.
UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested Tuesday for allegedly violating road traffic in his native Dublin, Ireland.
McGregor spokesperson Karen Kessler told ESPN that "Mr. McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by [Irish police] for alleged road traffic violations… He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station."
The 33 year-old was driving his €170,000 Bentley Continental GT at the time of the arrest, which was seized from him, only to be returned after he was released on bail.
Conor McGregor looks for trouble again
McGregor is one of the most famous stars in the UFC, and one of its most infamous characters as well. McGregor often makes headlines for run-ins with the law, including 18 different convictions, ranging from several driving offenses, to an arrest in 2018 for aggression, and an assault in 2019 for punching an older man in Dublin.
The Irish fighter was the first UFC fighter to hold two titles in two different weight divisions concurrently, clutching both the featherweight and lightweight belts.
McGregor, who fractured his leg last July during the first round against Dustin Poirier, has been preparing for a return in the UFC later this year.
