Conor McGregor made a court appearance owing to his dangerous driving arrest last month in Dublin Ireland
Former UFC double champion Conor McGregor had another run-in with the law last month when he was arrested for ‘alleged traffic violations’. The ‘Notorious’ one was back in court on Thursday afternoon to answer for his “dangerous driving” arrest.
The judge proclaimed a total of six offenses, including two counts of dangerous driving and operating a vehicle without a license and insurance.
McGregor has been remanded on bail and will return to court in June, according to Dublin Live.
Fans and media gathered outside the courtroom to catch a glimpse or grab a byte with the Irish superstar. When asked about his plans he said, “Straight back into training. Straight back in. I’m looking forward to getting back into the Octagon. We’ll see what happens. Day by day the leg’s getting better so I’m happy with that. I think 170 is what I’m aiming for. I feel good at this weight.”
