The MMA superstar turned himself in to cops last night after footage showed him smashing the bus window with a metal trolley during chaotic scenes at a UFC event.

The UFC superstar’s plane was grounded in New York while police searched for him and he later walked into the police station voluntarily.

An NYPD spokesman said this morning: “He (McGregor) has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief.”

The spokesman added that 25-year-old Cian Cowley, also a mixed martial arts fighter from Dublin, has also been charged with assault. He said both men would appear before a judge sometime today.
