Conor McGregor appeared in a Dublin court on Wednesday charged with six driving offenses in his Bentley Continental GT. We don’t know what the stance of The Notorious fighter is as he did not enter a plea in Blanchardstown District Court this morning.
On March 22, he was indicted on two counts of reckless driving and last appeared in court on April 7. He was also charged with driving without insurance or a driver’s license and failing to produce an insurance certificate or a driver’s license. The UFC star was driving his Bentley on the N4 in West Dublin when he was pulled over by the Gardai (Irish State Police).
The case has been adjourned until 10:30 am Thursday, September 8 while the chief prosecutor reviews it and other charges are pending, the court said. McGregor arrived in court on Thursday in a dark blue three-piece suit and at the wheel of a Rolls Royce with registration number 221. He made no comments to the media entering or exiting the courthouse.

“A man was arrested,” says a Garda spokesman, but does not specify if or if it was Conor McGregor
In March, a Garda spokeswoman said a man was arrested in connection with the incident and transported to Lucan Garda Station. Police issued a statement saying: “Gardai arrested a man in his 30s last night, Tuesday March 22, 2022, in connection with an incident of dangerous driving in the Palmerstown area.”
The department further explained, “The man was taken to Lucan Garda Station, where he was later charged. He was released pending a later appearance in Blanchardstown District Court.”
“Mr McGregor was driving to the gym when he was pulled over by Gardai for alleged road traffic offences.‘ said a McGregor representative at the time.“He passed the station’s drug and alcohol tests.”
McGregor is now on the road to recovery, having not fought since losing to Dustin Poirier in July last year, in which he broke his leg in his third loss in four bouts. The former two-weight world champion is set to return to the Octagon later this year and has pledged to fight for a world championship again after losing his last two bouts.
