Conor McGregor arrested: Video footage of police pulling UFC man over

A video has surfaced of UFC icon and all-round superstar Conor McGregor being pulled over by police in Dublin whilst driving his €170,000 Bentley Continental GT.

A fan managed to grab a video of him cruising in his Bentley with the sun roof down, before panning to behind the luxury car where a police car was flashing his lights at McGregor, signalling for him to pull over and stop.

It is believed the Irishman was driving on the N4 between Lucan and Palmerstown when he was pulled over for dangerous driving. From there, he was arrested and taken to Lucan Garda Station, where he was subsequently charged and released on bail. He will appear at Blanchardstown District Court next month where he could face a fine of £5,000 or up to six months imprisonment.

This is not McGregor’s first driving offence, as back in 2017 he appeared at the same District Court and was fined £400 for speeding. In 2019, he was also charged with the common assault of an older man, for which he pleaded guilty and managed to avoid a custodial sentence.

Regarding this offence, a spokesperson for McGregor had this to say: “Mr McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by garda for alleged road traffic violations. He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.”

The video has since been met with fans wondering what exactly McGregor did so wrong and why he was even pulled over in the first place. However, we don’t know what was happening before the camera started rolling, so it’s impossible to say.

In response to the incident, a spokesperson for the Garda station said : “Garda arrested a man aged in his 30s in relation to an incident of dangerous driving in the Palmerstown area yester evening Tuesday 22 March 2022.

“The man was taken to Lucan Garda Station where he was later charged. He has been released pending an appearance before Blanchardstown District Court at a later date.”

Conor McGregor has regular run-ins with the law and has a total of 18 previous convictions, most of which are driving offences.
