Conor McGregor again is a free man after bonding out of jail in South Florida.
McGregor was arrested Monday night for an incident that allegedly occurred in Monday’s early hours outside the Foutainbleau Miami Beach hotel. There is no word yet on when McGregor will appear in court to answer for two charges against him, both felonies.
Video captured by CBS-4 TV in Miami shows McGregor leaving the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami wearing gray sweatpants and a white T-shirt from his own August McGregor clothing line. He was accompanied by a second person who helped get him to an awaiting vehicle driven by a third person, and he walked past a throng of cameras and reporters to get into a black SUV with tinted windows.

McGregor allegedly took a cell phone from a man who was taking photos of him outside the hotel and smashed it, then picked it up and walked away with it. After police were called and McGregor ultimately was taken into custody, he was charged with one count of strong-arm robbery and one count criminal mischief of $ 1,000 or more. His total bond was set at $ 12,500.
A spokeswoman for McGregor’s attorney, Miami-based Samuel Rabin, issued a statement to MMA Junkie that said: “Early this morning Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.”
According to McGregor’s arrest report (which can be viewed here): “The victim and the defendant were exiting the Fountainbleau hotel and the victim attempted to take a picture of the defendant with his cell phone. The defendant slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor. The defendant then stomped on the victim’s phone several times, damaging it. The defendant then picked up the victim’s phone and walked away with it, depriving him of it. Victim stated the phone was valued at $ 1,000. The defendant was located and arrested.”
