Conor McGregor Sued by Alleged Victim after Smashing Phone

Postado Março 15, 2019

Conor McGregor's phone smashing incident was caught on video and now that footage has surfaced online.

Earlier this week former two-division champion Conor McGregor found himself in trouble with the law yet again, this time in Miami Beach, FL.

Court records obtained by the Associated Press show that 22-year-old Ahmed Abdirzak has filed a lawsuit against McGregor in a Miami-Dade court seeking more than $15,000 for battery, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The video appears to start recording following some type of exchange with McGregor, the fan, and hotel security, as McGregor's thunderous kicks are already halfway in motion by the time the altercation is captured on camera.

McGregor was recently released from jail after being arrested and charged with robbery and criminal damage in Miami.

The cameraman then rounds their visual obstruction and McGregor can be seen standing in front of a phone on the ground, before he reaches down and puts it in his pocket.

McGregor's criminal defence attorney called the lawsuit "a quick effort seeking a payday". What can also be seen and heard is the fan pleading to McGregor to give him his phone back, though based on the power and force behind each strike it's likely the phone was damaged upon fix. The video is short, but clearly shows McGregor in possession of a phone.

McGregor was subsequently arrested at a different location by Miami Police.
