Conor McGregor Has Charges Against Him Dropped In Phone-Smashing Case

Conor Mc Gregor of Ireland raises a cup of Irish whiskey during post-fight news conference at T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Prosecutors have dropped charges against star fighter Conor McGregor after he allegedly smashed a fan's phone outside a Miami hotel.

Police said the alleged victim in the incident was taking a picture of McGregor outside a hotel when he slapped the man's phone out of his hand, stamped on it several times and walked away with it.

McGregor was not in court for today's brief hearing.

In a conclusive memo, Assistant State Attorney Khalil Madani explained the situation.

"Based on the witness's credibility issues, his unwillingness to respond to a subpoena and the inability of the witnesses to testify as to his subjective mindset, the State of Florida can not prove the charges against Mr. McGregor beyond a reasonable doubt", Madani wrote.

The State Attorney's Office dropped charges of robbery by sudden snatching and criminal mischief at a hearing Monday. The degree of one felony charge was eventually lowered and the other was converted to a misdemeanor.

"Everything's above board the way they did it", former Florida prosecutor Paul Walsh told MMA Junkie.

As a result, the case against McGregor will not proceed. The incident has already been settled in a civil lawsuit involving McGregor and Ahmed Abdirzak. "Works out good for (McGregor)". McGregor had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges.

This isn't McGregor's first run-in with the law, as he was arrested in NY back in April of 2018 after he attacked a bus with rival fighters on board.

In October, the Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended McGregor for six months after he was involved in a post-fight brawl.
