Conor McGregor has been arrested in Miami Beach following an alleged altercation with a fan.

McGregor on Monday morning was leaving the Fontainebleau Miami Beach when the fan pulled out his cell phone to take a photo with the famed UFC fighter, according to police.

According to the arrest affidavit, that’s when McGregor allegedly “slapped the victim’s phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor.”

The affidavit states that McGregor then allegedly “marched on the victim’s phone several times, damaging it.”

“The defendant then picked up the victim’s phone and walked away with it, depriving him of it,” the arrest affidavit states.

According to the affidavit, the phone is valued at $1,000.

Later in the day, Miami Beach Police found McGregor arrested him and charged him with strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief, Miami Beach spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez told PEOPLE.

He was booked into a Miami-Dade jail Monday night, according to Miami Herald, who was first to report the news.

He has since been transported to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, where he is awaiting arraignment, Rodriguez said.

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on Sunday collapsed during Napoli’s Serie A match against Udinese, and he was taken to hospital afterwards.

The Colombian, on a season-long loan at Napoli, sustained a blow to the head when he collided with Ignacio Pussetto early in the match.

He then fell to the ground shortly before the break after Udinese levelled at 2-2 having been 2-0 down.
The 30-year-old received treatment before he was brought off the field.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti said: “Fortunately it’s nothing serious, he’s conscious. They did a CAT scan that is negative.”

Ospina signed for the Gunners in July 2014 but has only made 27 league appearances for the Premier League side.

He joined Napoli on a season-long loan deal in August 2018.
