A NY judge listed McGregor's charges as three misdemeanor counts of assault and one count of felony criminal mischief.

Now, his alleged "official mugshot" has been shared.

So, what does the future hold for McGregor? McGregor responded on Twitter not long after with a profane tweet that said, in part, you will "strip me of nothing".

MMA reporter Chamatkar Sandhu also claims that this is the official mugshot.

The 29-year-old was caught on video Thursday hurling a dolly through a side window of the bus as rival fighters attended a media event at the Barclays Center.

A warrant was previously issued for McGregor's arrest.

The Irish fighter gate-crashed a media day on Thursday and caused chaos in the venue's loading bay that led to several fighters getting injured.

The clip also shows the reaction from the fighters on the bus with Michael Chiesa suffering a cut to the head. Chiesa, who was to fight Anthony Pettis, was cut in the face and was in the hospital; he has been deemed unfit to fight by the New York State Athletic Commission and the UFC medical team.

The press conference was kicked off with UFC 223 main event stars Khabib Nurmagomedov and Al Iaquinta [drafted in at late, late notice] as they tried to talk up a fight that did not exist until shortly after 2:30pm [New York time] on Friday.

McGregor's group attacked a bus using trash cans, metal barricades and the dolly, White said.

Nurmagomedov improved to 26-0 (10-0 in UFC) in a path to the lightweight championship much more laborious than his five rounds in the ring at Barclays Center .

"Artem Lobov, who is on the undercard, is a very, very close friend of Conor McGregor", White said.

UFC's president, Dana White, echoed that reporting on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First," saying McGregor flew several people to NY from Ireland when he heard of the incident at the hotel. He said, 'I want Khabib in Russia'.

"Ridiculous considering the week we had", White said. "It was just like we got jumped".

McGregor last fought in a boxing match he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26, 2017.

Conor McGregor's violent rampage on a bus full of UFC fighters appears to have stemmed from this altercation a few days earlier.

The UFC's best-known athlete and an worldwide drawcard McGregor, 29, appeared before a judge at the Kings County Criminal Court, dressed in a blue, long-sleeved shirt that hid his trademark tattoos.
