Conor McGregor can't keep himself out of trouble lately. 

Last year, Conor was arrested for attacking a UFC bus, and today he was charged with felony robbery for smashing a man's cell phone. 

According to TMZ...

At around 5 AM Monday, the owner of the phone was walking out of the hotel at the same time as Conor and as the fan attempted to take a photo, Conor slapped the victim's phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the ground. McGregor then allegedly stomped on the phone several times, damaging it.

After all that, Conor decides to pick up the phone and walk away with it, not realizing he was on surveillance video the whole time. 

Conor was booked for robbery/strong-arm and criminal mischief over $1,000. He is currently being held on $12,500 bail.

After the arrest, Conor's legal team released a statement saying it was a "minor incident."

Last evening Conor McGregor has involved a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.
