UFC Superstar Conor McGregor Arrested After Attacking Bus

Famed mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor was charged Friday after allegedly attacking a bus full of UFC fighters in Brooklyn, NY, local news outlets are reporting. 

McGregor faces charges on three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. The MMA star allegedly turned himself Thursday night at a police precinct.

A video of the incident shows McGregor throwing a dolley hand truck through the window of the bus. The incident took place inside of the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn.

The UFC said in a statement that McGregor entered the area with more than a dozen individuals and vandalized the bus.

The NYPD said the incident caused a minor injury to an individual on the bus. At least two fights at Saturday's UFC 223 card have been scrapped because of the incident.

McGregor was released late Friday morning. 

UFC President Dana White told TMZ that this is "bigger than us firing him" in reference to McGregor, hinting that the star may be in greater legal trouble for the scuffle.

"I imagine he's going to be sued beyond belief and ... This is a real bad career move for him," White told TMZ.
