McGregor Earns Suspended License For Speeding
Conor McGregor resolved another of his legal battles this week, as he would be found guilty of going 35 miles over the speed limit.
McGregor would have his drivers license suspended on Wednesday by a judge in County Kildare, Ireland for a 2017 speeding violation that saw McGregor go 90 MPH in a 60 MPH zone, while driving a blue Range Rover.
McGregor apologized to the court today and said of his unpaid parking ticket: “I apologize, I passed it on to be paid.”
The former two-division champion’s lawyer, Graham Kenny said his client regularly travels and meant “no disrespect” to the court.
“The fine should have been paid,” claimed Kenny.
Sgt Michael Keevan told the court that McGregor was polite and apologized and had not realized how fast he was going.
Judge Desmond Zaidan claimed McGregor was not a “role model for teenagers,” after hearing McGregor had 12 prior convictions for issues pertaining to speeding and dangerous driving.
He convicted him and sentenced him to a six month ban and a €1,000 fine.
