Handcuffed Conor McGregor is led out of police station

He cut a forlorn figure

Darragh Murphy

Conor McGregor is about to learn his immediate fate.

McGregor is on his way to a Brooklyn criminal courthouse to sit before a judge after being charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief following his well-documented bus attack after UFC 223 media day.

The Irish UFC star turned himself into authorities late on Thursday night and was led out of the New York Police Department 78th precinct on Friday morning (New York time).

With his hands cuffed behind his back, McGregor was placed in a police vehicle and driven to his arraignment.

Two UFC fighters scheduled to compete on the UFC 223 card – Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg – have been pulled from their respective fights after suffering injuries due to the shattered glass which came about when McGregor hurled a heavy hand truck through the window of a bus that was carrying the red corner fighters

It’s understood a UFC employee was also hurt in the melee, which involved at least a dozen of McGregor’s close friends.

UFC President Dana White made no secret of the kind of legal drama that McGregor finds himself in.

“He’s going to jail! People are going to sue him. He’s gonna have a bunch of civil lawsuits,” White said.
