McGregor Avoids Jail As He Pleads Guilty To Disorderly Conduct

by admin on Thursday, July 26th, 2018

mcgregor statement july 26UFC Champion Conor McGregor has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct in exchange for five days of community service.

McGregor and his legal team successfully reached a plea deal with the court and as part of the agreement, the MMA fighter pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for his part in an April bus attack ahead of UFC 223.

The charges stem from an incident that took place at the backstage of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center when McGregor and his entourage attacked a bus full of MMA fighters after a news conference before UFC 223.

McGregor threw a dolly at the bus and two fighters were hurt from the broken glass and were unable to compete.

The MMA superstar will also submit to one to three days of an anger management program and pay for damages to the bus in addition to his five days of community service. Furthermore, if in the next year he violates the terms of his plea agreement he could be arrested for criminal contempt and sentenced to 15 days in jail.

McGregor was also ordered to stay away from fighters Ray Bourque, Jason Ledbetter and Michael Chiesa until July 25, 2020.

The violations won’t go into his criminal record and won’t generate any travel issues as they won’t affect his work visa in the United States, however, now that’s he’s pleaded guilty he’s opened himself up to the possibility of civil suits over the incident.

McGregor, who can now resume his fighting career without restrictions, apparently initiated the melee because he was looking to attack his long-term rival Khabib Nurmagomedov who was on the bus.

The 30-year-old Irishman was reportedly very angry after Nurmagomedov and his team cornered his close friend and training partner Artem Lobov at a hotel a few nights before UFC 223 took place.

Back in April McGregor was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief in connection with the attack. He initially faced up to seven years of jail time and possible threats to his American visa if convicted on all counts.
