The fan was more upset that he lost out on photos of his son.
Conor McGregor got himself into trouble on Monday when he was arrested for strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief in relation to an alleged incident where he slapped the phone out of the hands of a fan and destroyed it. The altercation took place in Miami Beach at the Liv Nightclub. Ahmed Abdirzak, the man who allegedly had his phone destroyed, spoke to TMZ about what went down. According to Abdirzak, he was just looking for a handshake from Conor and then he snapped.
Via TMZ Sports:
"As soon as he came to shake my hand, he pulled me in and he grabbed my phone and he started smashing it and all his security guards literally surrounded me, pushed me out the way, and he's stomping on it. [McGregor] was just like, 'Get the f--k out my face. Move,' and then I was like, 'Yo, sir, can I have my phone back?' There was a security in his entourage around him and I asked him if I could get my phone back and it was like, 'Yo, move, man. You better listen to what Conor says.' McGregor picked the phone up, put it in his pocket, laughed, and then he got in his SUV and they drove off. That's when the hotel manager come to me and said, 'Listen, I'll sort this out. Don't worry.'"
Abdirzak says he's not so much upset about the phone, but what was actually inside of the phone.
"I've got pictures of my son that I didn't even save on my iCloud that I'm gonna lose," Abdirzak said. "That's really what pissed me off the most. I've got pictures of my son that I'm never gonna get again."
McGregor is set to be arraigned on April 10th of this year.
