Conor McGregor is facing multiple charges for his antics on Thursday.

McGregor surrendered to authorities in New York after damaging a bus, which caused injuries to several UFC workers inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn. According to MMA broadcaster Mike Straka, McGregor is facing at least three charges, including:

– criminal mischief felony for damaging the bus
– Assault 3 misdemeanor for someone who claims he was punched
– Assault 3 reckless for injuring Michael Chiesa through the bus window

McGregor and his associates gained access to a UFC 223 media event at Barclays Center and then located a bus loaded with UFC fighters and other workers in a loading dock. They attacked the bus, with video showing McGregor launching an object at the bus. One video shows the bus windshield being cracked.

Three UFC 223 fights have been altered as a result of the attack, with two fighters being pulled due to injuries from McGregor’s behavior. McGregor and his associates have been banned from attending Friday’s weigh-in as well as Saturday’s fights.

The criminal behavior displayed by McGregor will likely cost him thousands in fines and perhaps millions in legal settlements with the victims affected by his actions.
