The UFC star has been reportedly taken into police custody in Corsica,France for alleged and attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition following a complaint from a young woman.
McGregor was interviewed and released by officials, and his team subsequently issued a statement and vehemently denied all wrong doing.
Complaints about the said allegations was filed on Thursday September 10.
“Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mcgregor was the subject of a hearing by the police,” the prosecutor stated in a statement sent to AFP.
MCGREGOR has not fought since he beat Donald Cerrone inside 40 seconds in January. His plans to fight three times this year were shattered by the coronavirus crisis and he announced his retirement in June for the third time in four years.
His manager, Audie Attar, put forth a statement to Yahoo Sports defending McGregor and debunking the misconception that he was involved in a crime.
“I am irate and putting out a warning loud and clear: Conor McGregor is not and will not be a target for those seeking to score a headline or a payday,” Attar said in a statement.
No cases of the Irishman being officially charged or convicted has emerged but the good news is McGregor has been released, but the case has not been closed, and there may be further action.
