    Connor McGregor arrested for felony robbery and criminal mischief

McGregor then allegedly stomped on the phone several times, damaging it.

    According to cops, McGregor then picked up the phone and walked away with it.

    It appears the incident was captured on surveillance video.

    The guy can't stop himself from screwing up and acting out in idiot ways.

    Edit: This comes just 5 days after completing probation on his last arrest.

    PD seem to be going overkill on this one. He's still an idiot though.

    How do you figure? He broke someone's presumably expensive phone and then stole it.

    He's lucky they didn't charge him with assault as well in my opinion.

    He knocked it to the ground and stomped on it after the dude got up in his face. That isn't "strongarm robbery."

    Sans video it seems like you're presuming that Conor wasn't the aggressor. He knocked someone's property out of their hand, stomped on it and stole it. Presumably under the threat of force either spoken or implied. That sounds like strong arm robbery. I'm sure we'll get to see the footage eventually and then we can second guess the cops.

    Given Conor's other violent antics I am not keen to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    I'm not sure this is MABS material. I'm going to relocate to "Martial Arts in the News." I'm not ignorant of my personal biases, but MABS threads don't start with a TMZ article.

    Good call. TMZ sucks but they broke the news so I linked to them.

    That wasn't a MABS worthy post anyway.

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

    Goddamn. A felony for breaking someone’s phone. That’s pretty stiff. But whatever. He’s a dick. Who cares?

    I'm certain he'll suffer personal and professional consequences this time.
    Like a fast pass to an undeserved title match or another Pay Per View special.
    There's no way Dana will let such heinous fuckery go unrewarded.
