Conor McGregor has had quite the past 48 hours. On Thursday afternoon, he bashed in the windows of a bus carrying over 20 UFC fighters. His intentions have not been made immediately clear but some have speculated that McGregor is upset with UFC President Dana White for stripping him of his lightweight champion title.
His whereabouts were unknown until this morning, when he turned himself in and was subsequently charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal mischief.
McGregor supposedly spent the night in a New York jail but was recently released on Friday afternoon after making $50,000 bail. Hes due back in court on June 14 but is allowed to travel within both Ireland and the United States in the meantime.
Sports Illustrated caught video of his release from court and his mugshot on Friday.
NBC New York reporter John Chandler reports that McGregor is due back in court in June but is not considered an active threat.

Its still unclear what McGregors future looks like in the UFC following these recent events. Dana White revealed on Friday that he has no intention to bail McGregor out of this situation.
“No, you dont get my help on this one,” White told ESPNs “Get Up” this morning.
