Conor McGregor has handed himself into police in New York after an incident that took place at UFC 223 Media Day On Thursday Night. 

He has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief

The UFC fighter is being accused of attacking a bus which was carrying several fighters. 

McGregor turned himself in at the 78th Precinct police station in Brooklyn last night and was taken into custody.

The fighter is currently being questioned about allegations of possible assault and criminal mischief. 

The incident took place just after 6:30pm Irish time and it is being reported that it caused a minor injury to one of the passengers on board.

Later on that night, UFC boss Dana White said that an arrest warrant had been issued for McGregor.
