Conor McGregor pleads guilty to disorderly conduct charges – Daily Mail

United States News

Conor McGregor will avoid prison time after announcing a plea deal with prosecutors in a Brooklyn, New York courtroom on Thursday morning. The brash, 30-year-old UFC star was charged with assault and criminal mischief for his role in a brawl at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in April that left several fighters covered in glass when he smashed a hand truck into the window of a van in which they were riding. McGregor will have to pay restitution for damage to the van and will be forced  to attend an anger management class. The Dublin native declined to make a statement. McGregor faced up to seven years if convicted on all charges, but that was never considered a likely outcome, particularly after McGregor’s attorney told a Brooklyn judge in June that the plea deal was being negotiated with prosecutors and his co-defendant, Cian Cowley, another Irish fighter. In June, McGregor said he regretted his actions, although he did not publicly apologize to the victims. Video footage showed McGregor hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a press conference for UFC 223 at Barclays Center in April. MMA stars Michael Chiesa, Ray Borg, and others were injured by shattered glass and unable to compete in the event.
