Conor McGregor has officially been charged with assault after he was caught on video striking an elderly man in an Irish pub earlier this year.
While Conor has already come out and take full responsibility, even apologizing to the person, the justice system still has to do its part and Conor will have to answer for his transgression in court.
According to a report from Independent.ie, McGregor’s attack on the man falls under Section Two of the Non-Fatal Offenses Against the Person Act.
If convicted, he faces a hefty monetary fine and possibly six months jail time.
As we have seen in the past, Conor has been able to get by with just a fine, community service or other lenient punishments for his transgression, so it remains to be seen if he once again gets away with a simple slap on the wrist and withdrawal of his bank account.
“Notorious” has been teasing an MMA return, but nothing has been made official as of this time. That means the Irishman now won’t make his return until 2020.
Should things not go his way in court and he is somehow forced to do some jail time, it owuld obviously delay his comeback. He is set to appear in court on October 11, 2019.
But something tells us Conor won’t be spending a night in jail, meaning he can resume his MMA comeback plans for the new year.
