UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested in Florida on Monday for allegedly smashing a fan’s phone outside a hotel in Miami Beach, police said.

McGregor, 30, was booked at a Miami-Dade correctional facility and charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief, police confirmed to Fox News.

The UFC fighter was charged after he allegedly smashed a fan’s phone around 5 a.m. outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, according to an arrest report. Police said the fan tried to take a picture of McGregor with his phone, and the fighter “slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor.”

The mixed martial arts fighter “then stomped on the victim’s phone several times, damaging it,” the report said. At that point, McGregor allegedly picked up the phone and “walked away with it.”

The victim told investigators the phone cost $1,000.

McGregor is being held on $12,000 bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami, online records show.

    $12,000 bond, really? Honestly, I can sympathize with these folks having cameras stuck in their face every time they turn around. And now it’s ALL THE TIME because of idiots walking around with their cellphones out constantly. The only ones worse than those folks constantly having to ‘video’ everything they see are the ones who do it in VERTICAL video! Grrrrr!

    I believe he’s had too many punches to the head. You don’t punch someone because they took your picture. But maybe he was doing something, or being somewhere that he wasn’t suppose to be. He might think he’s God’s gift to women, and he got caught where he shouldn’t have been.
