McGregor Cuts Deal to Avoid NYC Jail
a move that surprised a lot of people, it seems Irish mixed martial arts superstar
Conor McGregor has decided to plead guilty to the charges of disorderly conduct
whilst in New York. But this plea comes with a silver lining as the admittance
of a guilty verdict allows McGregor to avoid the seven-year jailtime he was facing
along with large fines, the possibility of further civil suits and immigration
woes for his US visa should he be convicted by the courts. This court case will
also result in him losing a great deal of money, so theres less for him
to spend lavishly on things such as the best
online casino slots.
incident in question that McGregor pled guilty to was attacking a bus filled with
UFC fighters in New Yorks Barclay Centre back in April. His frenzied attack
that the judge deemed as criminal mischief left three UFC athletes
injured with one suffering cuts to his eye from flying broken glass and McGregor
staring down serious jailtime.
the attack McGregor was seen running up to a bus carrying other UFC fighters before
yelling angrily and launching a trolley through one of the front windows. His
outburst later turned out to be because of the recent decision by the UFC to strip
him of his lightweight title. A decision that Connor McGregor angrily objected
to in several profanity covered tirades he left over on his Twitter account.
instead of doing something constructive and calming like playing a game on Easy
Slots, Conor decided to take his frustrations out on a large bus.
McGregor fans can relax as instead of destroying his career, McGregor was handed
a sentence by the judge of community service for five days. He was also given
orders of protection to stay away from three people that were injured
in the attack and to attend an anger management programme.
part of his rather fleeting court appearance, McGregor stood before the judge
looking humbled in a dark suit with a striped tie. Commenting on the result of
the brief court case McGregor said: I just want to say Im thankful
to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward.
visibly relieved as the sentencing was passed down, McGregor continued by thanking
his friends, family and fans for all the continued support during the legal proceedings.
asked what was next for the UFC superstar his manager Audie Attar chimed in: Now
its about getting back to business.
famous fighter and his entourage were then rushed to a SUV that was waiting nearby
as fans in the crowd cheered him on like he was a conquering hero and not someone
that just missed going to prison.
he looked humbled in court this isnt McGregors first time his attitude
has gotten him in trouble. But he should take the massive bullet he just dodged
onboard and uses those five days of community service to reflect on his actions
and calm down before going off on another rage fuelled attack is something we
will need to keep an eye on.
