Conor McGregor Pleads Guilty To One Charge From Infamous Bus Incident

Conor McGregor was in court in New York today on charges of assault and criminal mischief. 

He was accused of throwing a metal handcart at a bus carrying UFC fighters at an event in Brooklyn in April.

Prosecutors say it resulted in two men on board the bus suffering injuries. He is also accused of punching a security guard.

The verdict is now in and all felony counts have been dismissed. He has been found guilty of disorderly conduct which he admitted.

He now must undertake five days of community service and also undergo anger management classes. An order of protection has been placed against Ray Borg, Jason Ledbetter and Michael Chiesa.
