Conor McGregor was arrested Monday night for an alleged incident involving a fan at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. The UFC star was charged with “one count of strong-arm robbery and one count of criminal mischief valued at $1,000 or more dollars.”
The two charges combined for a $12,500 bond, which McGregor has posted. He wasn’t expected to spend the night in jail and left shortly after the payment, with local media in attendance.

McGregor’s team has released a statement following the arrest, pledging his full cooperation during the proceedings.
The incident was said to be captured on surveillance video, but that footage, along with any other evidence won’t be made public “until prosecutors give it to the defense, sometime after arraignment 21 days after arrest.”
McGregor had just recently finished his community service work that was sanctioned after his 2018 arrest in New York. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, and avoided jail time that incident.
