Former two-division UFC Champion Conor McGregor was reportedly arrested and has since been freed in Corsica after a filed complaint over sexual assault and indecent exposure. The story was first reported by AFP on Saturday.
Per a statement by McGregor’s lawyer provided to AFP, he was released on Saturday with his charges dropped, four days after he was taken into custody.
No further information on the incident has been provided currently.
McGregor has found himself in notable court cases before, including a physical altercation in a bar and at a UFC event.
Last October, McGregor pleaded guilty to assault, being fined 1,000 Euro for an incident where he assaulted a man in a bar in Dublin, Ireland.
McGregor pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2018 following an incident at the UFC 223 fight week which saw McGregor attack a bus that had UFC fighters and team members inside. McGregor was ordered to perform five days of community service and take an anger management class.
McGregor announced his retirement from MMA last June in a Tweet.
McGregor has been in France for a water-bike race, being apart of “Team Notorious.” The two-day event, which is scheduled for September 12th and 13th, is a charity event for the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.
