Mixed martial arts legend Conor McGregor was detained by police in Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean, on Saturday on suspicion of sexual assault and indecent exposure, per multiple reports.
No details of the reported incident were made available other than it occurred Thursday in a bar in the town of Calvi in Corsica. A court official in Bastia, Corsica, confirmed McGregor's arrest to the Agence France-Presse.
“Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing facts likely to be qualified as attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure, Conor Anthony McGregor was the subject of a hearing … under the custody regime,” according to a statement from the prosecutor’s office in Bastia.
McGregor, 32, denied the accusations. His manager, Audie Attar, also spoke out on behalf of his client.
"Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released," Attar told the New York Post through a spokesman.
"I am irate and putting out a warning loud and clear: Conor McGregor is not and will not be a target for those seeking to score a headline or a payday," Attar told the Post in an email.
The former UFC star is reportedly vacationing in the area with fiancee Dee Devlin and their two children.
