Mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor was taken into police custody in Brooklyn Thursday night for his role in a melee at the Barclays Center, authorities said.
McGregor, 29, turned himself in at the 78th Precinct Stationhouse in Park Slope to potentially face assault charges, according to police sources.

The strapping Irishman was caught on video attacking a bus in the arena’s garage with his entourage, according to TMZ.
In the running chaos, one of McGregor’s cohorts allegedly tossed a chair through the bus’s windshield.
UFC head Dana White called the bus vandalism, “criminal, disgusting and it makes me sick,” according to USA Today.
“I don’t know if he’s on drugs, or what his deal is,” White said of McGregor at a Brooklyn press conference.
