Conor McGregor has road traffic charges thrown out of Dublin court in 10 seconds just weeks after driving ban

CONOR McGregor has had four road traffic charges against him struck out in court in Dublin, three weeks after he was banned from driving for six months over a separate speeding offence.

The Irish UFC star, 30, was accused of not producing his license and insurance after he was pulled over by Gardaí in Grove Road, Rathmines, on July 10 this year.

He appeared before Dublin District Court this morning charged with failing to present the documentation to Gardaí within 10 days of the alleged incident.

The Mixed Martial Arts fighter also stood accused of driving without a licence and insurance.

However, Judge Geraldine Carthy dismissed the charges after McGregor's solicitor Graham Kenny provided the missing documentation in advance of today's hearing.

McGregor, dressed in a navy suit and purple tie, thanked the judge as the brief hearing concluded after just 10 seconds in courtroom eight of the Criminal Courts of Justice (CCJ) building.

Last month, The Notorious was banned from driving for six months after admitting to speeding in his Range Rover at close to 100mph within a 62mph zone in a separate road incident last year.

The Crumlin native, of an address in Laraghcon, Lucan, was further fined €1,000 over the incident on the N7 at Kill, Co. Kildare on October 11, 2017.

Just over a year ago, McGregor made a memorable appearance at Blanchardstown District Court when he pulled up in a sports car dressed in a green tracksuit.

The Irishman was fined €400 for speeding on that occasion.
