Mixed martial arts legend Conor McGregor was placed in police custody Saturday in Corsica on suspicion of attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure, prosecutors said.
“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.
The statement provided no other details about the alleged offenses.
McGregor, 32, denied the charges.
“Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released,” he told The Post through a spokesman, who added the brawler was interviewed by police and later released.
The Irishman, whose nickname is “Notorious” returned to the Octagon early this year after completing court-ordered community service for a bus of rival MMA fighters leaving Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in 2018. He also faced a civil suit in Miami after his arrested for destroying a fan’s cell phone.
He announced his third retirement from the sport in June.
The former Ultimate Fighting Championship star is reportedly vacationing on the French island with fiancee Dee Devlin and their two children.
