UFC star Conor McGregor had his Bentley Continental GT briefly seized, and is facing a dangerous driving charge after being arrested and released on bail in his native Dublin.
According to a report by Ireland’s Independent, McGregor, 33, was pulled over by the Gardai (national police service in Ireland) on Tuesday evening while he was driving on the N4 between Lucan and Palmerstow. He’s been charged with dangerous driving, which in Ireland carries a maximum fine of up to €5,000, and punishment up to six months imprisonment.
The fighter is expected to appear before the Blanchardstown district court next month. McGregor was previously hit with a speeding ticket in 2017 in the very same district. That said, it’s unlikely the UFC star sees anywhere near close to the maximum punishment in this case.
McGregor (22-6) continues to rehab the leg he snapped in the rubber match of his trilogy with Dustin Poirier last July. In a recent interview with his website The Mac Life, he suggested a fall return date was possible.
The Irish star has lost his last two fights, both against Poirier. Prior to that, he finished Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone with a head kick in the main event of UFC 246 in January 2020.
