Conor McGregor Was Arrested In Miami Beach For Allegedly Smashing A Fan’s Phone

Published

UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami Beach on Monday evening on charges of strong-arm robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief after an altercation involving a fan outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel in the wee hours of the morning, according to the Miami Herald.

Police told the Herald that a fan was taking pictures outside the hotel, home to LIV nightclub, when McGregor allegedly took the fan’s phone and smashed it around 5 a.m. The star fighter was booked on Monday evening in a Miami-Dade jail.

McGregor is currently serving the last month of his six-month suspension for his role in a post-fight brawl after his loss at UFC 229 to Khabib Nurmagomedov, and can return to the Octagon in early April.

UFC has not released any statements on McGregor’s arrest; it’ll be interesting to see if any punishment will be headed his way.

Carlos Santana Destroyed A TV With A Bat Because His Teammates Were Playing ‘Fortnite’ During Games

Published

Carlos Santana is back with the Indians this season, but he spent 2018 with the Phillies.

Carrying the youngest roster in Major League Baseball, the Phillies over-achieved in the early part of the season, standing atop the N.L. East until August. And as the season began to slip away, an incident in the clubhouse revealed the Phillies issues ran deeper than just their inconsistent play on the field.

One game in September, Santana found out that some players were in the clubhouse playing Fortnite during the real game.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan:

“When the Philadelphia Phillies lost their ninth consecutive game toward the end of last September, veteran first baseman Carlos Santana felt like he needed to send a message to his teammates who he said spent portions of the game against the Atlanta Braves playing video games in the clubhouse. Santana grabbed a bat, retreated to the room at Citizens Bank Park where the gaming took place and smashed the TV to ensure there would be no more Fortnite the final two days of the season.

“I see a couple players — I don’t want to say names — they play video games during the game,” Santana told ESPN. “We come and lose too many games, and I feel like they weren’t worried about it. Weren’t respecting their teammates or coaches or the staff or the [front] office. It’s not my personality. But I’m angry because I want to make it good.”

One thing is for sure, the Phillies clubhouse attitude will be a lot different this year with Bryce Harper, and Santana is back with the Indians, a team who surely doesn’t have players who play Fortnite during games.
