Conor McGregor has been pictured in Miami following his arrest for allegedly smashing a fan's phone.

The Irishman was arrested and charged with strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief on Miami Beach.

McGregor allegedly grabbed a fan's mobile phone outside the Fontainebleau Hotel just after 5 am on March 11, before stamping on it and taking it away.

He is now facing two felony charges, just days after completing community service in New York for disorderly conduct.

Abdirzak exclusively told the Mirror about the incident in which McGregor destroyed his mobile phone before fleeing the scene.

“He gave me his hand for me to shake, I have that on camera, I’ve got my phone out, I’m recording me shaking Conor McGregor’s hand," he said.

“He pulls me in with his hand and with his right-hand slaps my hand with the phone. Like proper power. Full power. Slap my wrist. The phone falls to the floor.

“He starts stamping on my phone, picks my phone up off the floor, puts it in his pocket, does the McGregor walk, gets in his chauffeur car and says ‘F*** you’ and goes away.”

The incident was caught on surveillance video which Ahmed said he was due to receive from police.
