Charges dropped against Conor McGregor for phone-smashing tribulation

Notorious is free from facing criminal charges in Florida.

The Irish star found himself in a legal situation post allegedly smashing the cell phone of a fan named Ahmed Abdirzak. However approximately 4 weeks ago, Abdirzak withdrew charges against Conor Mcgregor, which was perceived by many as a settlement behind the scenes.

Abdirzak stated he no longer felt McGregor wanted to cause any harm. This turned out to be an issue for prosecutors in Florida, as this represented a U-turn in the victims earlier claim. This resulted in Abdirzak being labelled as not credible and leading to charges being dropped against Conor.

In a final memo from Assistant State Attorney Khalil Madani clarified the circumstances.

Abdirzak “has credibility issues as he’s changed his previously sworn testimony,” Madani’s memo clarified (h/t ESPN).

“Based on the witness’s credibility issues, his unwillingness to respond to a subpoena and the inability of the witnesses to testify as to his subjective mindset, the State of Florida cannot prove the charges against Mr. McGregor beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The initial incident took place late March, and Conor McGregor landed in jail. He was later released for a $5,000 bond.

Originally, Abdirzak claimed $15,000 in damages.
