Conor McGregor could face 7 years in prison for Barclays meltdown


I thought from the moment I heard about this, it was a publicity stunt.  I guess getting paid over 100 mill for his last fight with Floyd Mayweather wasn't enough to keep him happy.  
NY Post reports MMA star Conor McGregor was slapped with a slew of criminal charges Friday for allegedly chucking a hand truck at a bus full of fellow fighters and punching another man in the face, according to a criminal complaint.

The foul-mouthed 29-year-old was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court for the violent fracas a day before at the Barclays Center.

He was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. He faces as much as seven years in prison, if convicted.
