It has been confirmed that UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, but he won’t face any charges regarding the ownership of replica guns.
The notorious was the subject of an investigation last week when he posted pictures online of himself wearing a balaclava and holding the replica gun in his car in Crumlin, Dublin. The replica weapons were subsequently seized by Gardaí when they called to McGregor’s parents home on Friday and spoke to him in relation to the incident.
However the issue seems to have been resolved, as a Garda spokesperson said: “He handed over two air-soft guns which his dad had bought him for Christmas. They’ve been sent off for ballistics tests as a matter of procedure, but he’s not likely to face any charges.”
Meanwhile McGregor issued an apology regarding the incident via Instagram, saying: “I apologise for having the air-soft in public. I was simply rehearsing for a potential upcoming film role,” he told followers.
