Connor McGregor managed to avoid passive attention after refraining from publishing rude remarks in the last few weeks. We commend him for that but, the Irishman seems to need some anger management classes after he was arrested in Miami for smashing and stealing the fan’s phone.The UFC’s two-division champ has just manage to get himself in trouble with the law again.
According to Miami police, a man named Ahmed Abdulrazak who is from England approached McGregor and tried to take a picture of him with his phone.
Instead of smiling at the camera, as most of us usually do, for some reason, “the infamous” took the device out of Abdulrazak’s grip and crushed it on the ground then carrying it to himself and walking away.
The incident occurred at 5:20 a.m. on Thursday, while the arrest occurred just over a dozen hours at 5:56 p.m.
