Conor McGregor is facing a civil lawsuit after being charged in South Florida with stealing the cellphone of someone who was trying to take his photo, as reported by AP.

As seen in the footage, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion is seen and heard using his left foot to stomp on a smart phone he allegedly took from a man. Now, a video of the incident has surfaced. I love my fans dearly.

A fan had accused McGregor of slapping his phone from his hand, stomping on it, and pocketing the phone before being driven off in a chauffeured vehicle.

Prior to his release, McGregor's team issued a statement on his behalf, saying: "Last evening Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement".
