Earlier this week former two-division champion Conor McGregor found himself in trouble with the law yet again, this time in Miami Beach, FL.

Conor McGregor was arrested in Miami after taking a fan's phone and smashing it outside of the Fontainebleau Hotel around 5 am on Monday (March 11). Now, a video of the incident has surfaced.

The video, which was obtained and posted by TMZ, can be seen here.

The alleged victim, Ahmed Abdirzak of England, were both exiting the Fountainebleu Hotel at around 5:20 a.m. when they met. Abdirzak attempted to take a photo of McGregor with his phone but McGregor allegedly slapped the phone out of Abdirzak's hand to the floor. The video is short, but clearly shows McGregor in possession of a phone.

Abdirzk valued the smashed and missing phone at $1,000.

McGregor's arrest in Miami was the second time in less than a year that he has been arrested and initially charged with a felony. What can also be seen and heard is the fan pleading to McGregor to give him his phone back, though based on the power and force behind each strike it's likely the phone was damaged upon fix. He later settled and, in fact, just completed his community service from the incident. Both he and Nurmagomedov are now serving Nevada State Athletic Commission imposed suspensions for their roles in a brawl that took place after the fight at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.

McGregor is expected back in court on April 10.
