As you may have already seen on social media, Conor McGregor has been on vacation in Corsica for several days. The MMA star shared a lot of pictures of his occasional outings - which were mostly just him going out for a run - on Facebook.
But that's not why he made headlines on Saturday, September 12th: he was actually taken into police custody (not that this is a first). The Irishman was accused of attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition. A statement from the Bastia prosecutor's office that was sent to AFP reads:
Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor was the subject of a hearing by the gendarmerie services.
The events allegedly took place at a bar in Calvi. In fact, Conor McGregor was detained by authorities in the Corsican town of Balagne. The Notorious was supposed to participate -- on September 12 -- in the third edition of the Riviera Water Bike Challenge, a 180 km waterbike race from Calvi to Monaco, to raise awareness about drowning prevention and water safety.
