Gardai investigating alleged pub assault involving Conor McGregor

GARDAI ARE investigating an allegation of assault involving Conor McGregor and a man which took place in a Dublin pub back in April.

The confirmation comes after footage of the incident was posted online by TMZ Sports.

It came from an incident that occurred at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on April 6.

In the footage, McGregor can be seen talking to patrons at the bar.

A bottle of his popular Proper Twelve whiskey appears, and McGregor begins lining up glasses so that each of the men at the bar can have a taste.

However, the problems begin when one of the elderly men refuses the offer of a free drink, twice moving away the cup McGregor places in front of him.

With tempers evidently flared, McGregor proceeds to down a shot of his whiskey with the other drinkers before suddenly aiming a left fist at the temple of the man.

Two men immediately grab the UFC star and drag him away.

It’s unclear whether a comment from the elderly man sparked the attack.

A spokesperson said: “Gardai are investigating an assault incident that occurred at a public house in Drrimnagh, Dublin 12, on April 6, 2019 at approximately 2:30pm.

“Investigations ongoing in relation to this incident and no arrests have been made to date.”
