Dramatic CCTV vision has emerged of UFC star Conor McGregor’s violent destruction of a fan’s mobile phone in the United States.
Police arrested the Irishman over the incident at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel in March.
The fan at the centre of the drama later sued the UFC star over the confrontation and the destruction of his phone.
New footage obtained by TMZ Sports has captured the explosive run-in at the Miami hot spot.
McGregor can be seen in the vision swatting the phone out of the man’s hands and onto the ground, before angrily stomping on it.
The victim was reportedly trying to take pictures or video of the UFC star outside the nightclub when the fighter took exception to his approach.
McGregor allegedly picked up the smashed phone and left the premise moments afterwards, before he was later arrested at a Miami home.
The 30-year-old has been at the centre of several recent controversies, including his vile war of words on social media with UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Irish police are also reportedly investigating the fighter over a recent bar brawl at a pub in Dublin.
The lawsuit against McGregor has since been dropped, with reports the Irishman came to an out-of-court settlement with the complainant.
However, McGregor still faces legal charges, though they have been downgraded since the initial arrest.
Following a review by prosecutors, the two charges were modified, according to a report by USA Today.
USA today reported that a review by prosecutors saw McGregor’s two charges modified.
“As a matter of normal procedure, police officers arrest and charge based on probable cause, the lowest evidentiary standard,” Ed Griffith, spokesperson for the Miami-Dade state attorney, told USA TODAY Sports.
“Prosecutors must believe that they can prove the potential charges beyond a reasonable doubt, a much higher standard of required evidence.”
After determining the value of the phone to be between $200 and $1,000, the charge of felony criminal mischief was reduced to a misdemeanour.
The strong-armed robbery charge was reduced to a charge of robbery by sudden snatching, which lowers it from a second-degree to a third-degree felony.
It means McGregor faces up to six years in jail rather than 20 years for the more serious offence.
It is unlikely the UFC superstar will serve any time behind bars but the charges could have an affect on his immigration status as an Irish citizen.
