Conor McGregor Faces Six Alleged Driving Offenses In Home Country
Conor McGregor is facing multiple alleged driving offenses following a recent arrest in March.
The 33-year-old has six traffic offense charges, according to Dublin Live. He appeared at a Blanchardstown courthouse in Dublin Thursday morning.
“Mr. McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by Gardai for alleged road traffic violations,” McGregor’s representative Karen Kessler said in a statement to MMA Fighting on March 23.
“He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.”
McGregor was stopped and arrested on March 22 and had his Bentley Continental impounded by authorities. He was later released on bail and his vehicle was returned.
The Irishman was initially charged with dangerous driving, but the latest report says he is now facing those two counts plus four other charges including driving without a license and insurance and failure to produce a license and insurance.
He is scheduled to return to court in June. His only comment to reporters was: “Just straight back into training my man.”
McGregor has not fought since suffering a broken tibia and loss to Dustin Poirier in their trilogy fight in July.
The former double champion looks to be prepping for a summer return though it’s unclear who he would face or what division he’d be in when he makes his comeback.
