NYPD investigating Conor McGregor incident but no arrest yet
NYPD is now getting involved in the Conor McGregor incident.
McGregor and his entourage caused a disturbance — and potentially committed crimes — after showing up at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Thursday for a UFC 223 media event.
McGregor and some with his crew are accused of going to a loading dock where a bus full of UFC fighters was and attacking the bus. A video shows the bus windshield cracking after being pelted with an object.
UFC president Dana White said there was an arrest warrant out for McGregor, who is upset with the company after being stripped of his lightweight title belt due to inactivity.
MMA Fighting’s Marc Raimondi reports that the New York Police Department has not yet issued a warrant for McGregor’s arrest, but they are looking to speak with the fighter.
Just spoke to a spokesman for the NYPD. There is no warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest at this time, he said. They are, though, looking for him and want to speak with him, the spokesman said. No one has filed charges against McGregor at this moment.

UFC fighter Michael Chiesa was reportedly taken to the hospital after being cut by broken glass from the incident. McGregor may have been at the event to support his teammate Artem Lobov, who was set to fight on the UFC 223 card. White has since said that Lobov is no longer on the card.
