Conor McGregor vs. Conor McGregor

Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor has been arrested in Miami Beach on charges of strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief.

McGregor was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami tonight after an incident that allegedly took place early in the day outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel. The Miami Herald first reported the news.
...
McGregor allegedly took the phone from a man taking photos of him outside the hotel and smashed it. According to Miami-Dade County jail’s website, McGregor’s charges of strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief of $1,000 or more came with bonds of $7,500 and $5,000, respectively. Both are felony charges.
...
This latest mishap is part of what is growing to be a pattern of legal woes for McGregor.

His most significant incident came in April when he infamously attacked a bus with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and several other fighters inside. He threw a dolly through the window of the bus, which caused several people to be hurt and McGregor to be arrested.

McGregor just recently completed community service at churches to clear the bus attack charges, but just days later, he finds himself in hot water again.
...
The UFC removed McGregor’s lightweight belt, which was won by Nurmagomedov, and that set up the showdown with the fighters after McGregor got past the legal ramifications of his bus attack.

But the trouble continued at UFC 229 this past October. Nurmagomedov submitted McGregor in the fourth round, denying the Irishman in his chance to win a title back. And afterward, a post-fight melee started by Nurmagomedov left both of them fined and suspended.

McGregor’s suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission will be up in April, and he’ll be eligible to fight again. There’s no telling yet what this current potential legal brouhaha in Florida will do to his time table for a return to the cage, but his previous legal trouble in New York did not include probationary term.

How that could happen is anyone's guess.

he took a phone and gets 2 felony counts?

I'm thinking this would normally go down to a misdemeanor at best, but his history may prevent that...

No idea. The law says that you have to fight over the phone for it to be strong arm robbery. Meaning he rested it away while the victim resisted. That could mean almost anything, especially with an MMA/boxer. Phones can be well over a thousand dollars, although I have no idea if that is above or below some threshold or whatever.

Internet says strong armed robbery is a 2nd degree felony.

He'll probably plea out to a misdemeanor. Ain't no thang.

Wait a minute, McGregor lost to Nurmagomedov?

That's kind of awesome in a way tho. Like. Not only is he angry at the MMA person or his entourage, he's got beef with the bus too.
