Conor McGregor has reportedly been arrested for alleged ‘attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition’ in Corsica.

Reports in France state that Conor McGregor was arrested for an incident in the French region of Corsica, where the Irish mixed martial artist has been preparing for a 180-kilometre yacht voyage.

The details of the incident have not been made public and McGregor has vigorously denied any accusations of misconduct.

A statement from the prosecutor’s office obtained by 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.”
