UFC bad boy Conor McGregor has been arrested in Miami and charged with a double felony.

According to police reports, McGregor was on his way out of famous nightclub LIV at approximately 5am, when the fan attempted to take a photo. McGregor is said to have slapped the phone to the ground and stomped on it several times.

After viewing the incident on surveillance camera, police tracked the former UFC champion down at his Miami Beach home to make the arrest.

McGregor was charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief, both of which are felonies under American law.

The fighter, known as 'Notorious', is on holiday in Florida, where he celebrated his mother's 60th birthday at the iconic Versace mansion.

McGregor was arrested just under year ago in New York City, when police said he attacked a charter bus carrying several UFC fighters, throwing a dolly through the window.

He later pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge, and was sentenced to five days of community service and an anger management course.

McGregor is currently serving a ban for his role in the post-fight melee following his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
