Conor McGregor has found himself in trouble with authorities once more. Reports surfaced this morning that the UFC superstar was arrested in Corsica for indecent exposure and was detained, interrogated and released.
The charge was filed on September 10th and this is the statement by the Corsica court official:
“Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor was the subject of a hearing by the gendarmerie services.”
A representative of Conor McGregor told TMZ that McGregor denies any misconduct. According to a French official, the incident took place at a bar.
McGregor has been sailing around the Mediterranean Sea on his yacht and showed pictures of him being tested by USADA even though he has “retired.” The Instagram post has had fans wondering if he was plotting another return to the sport.
