Details of Conor McGregor sexual assault arrest revealed

CONOR MCGREGOR was arrested in Corsica on Friday for alleged sexual assault and indecent exposure.

It was reported that the former UFC star "exposed himself to a young married woman as she made her way to the toilet" of a bar on September 6.

The 32-year-old - who "vigorously" denies all accusations against him - was interviewed by local police and later released without charge on Saturday.

French broadcaster France 3 Corse reportedly spoke with a friend of the alleged victim about the incident.

The source said that her friend "was on holiday in Calvi with her husband" and was "deeply shocked" by the altercation.

As the alleged victim of a sex crime, she will be entitled to anonymity while pursuing her complaint.

McGregor is now waiting for the results of "key physical tests" and the "examination of film evidence", before learning whether or not he will be re-arrested.

"Key physical tests were carried out on the suspect, but the results will not be known until after the weekend," an investigating source said.

"These tests are of a routine nature following incidents like this, but they take time, to make sure there is no doubt about them.

"It is also possible that the incident being complained about was filmed. It took place in a very busy place, where fixed cameras are situated everywhere.

"Lots of holidaymakers would also have been filming and taking pictures on their phones, so they also need to be spoken to."

Emmanuelle Ramon, McGregor's lawyer told TMZ Sports: "Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct."

McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar, said in a statement: "I am irate and putting out a warning loud and clear: Conor McGregor is not and will not be a target for those seeking to score a headline or a payday."

McGregor was staying on his yacht in Corsica with his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, and their two children.
