UFC Champion Conor McGregor was seen wearing an Adidas all track suit the court house following speeding charges leveled against him.
The 29 year old former boxer who had a major fight against Floyd Mayweather was tasked to appear in court following his refusal to appear before the Judge, who was really upset on his abscence.
Furious Judge Miriam Walsh had threatened to hand an arrest warrant to the Gardai after the UFC star did not appear for the third time over a speeding offence. He eventually arrived in a £200,000 BMW i8 sports car and then handed over with a £350 fine.
The Judge according to reports had earlier said that if McGregor wanted to make any case in his defence, ‘he has to be here’.
The District Court judge pointed out this was the third time McGregor had failed to turn up in court – and that she was not prepared to tolerate any further ‘disrespect’.
She said: ‘I’m giving him one more opportunity to be here. If he isn’t here, I’m going to issue a bench warrant. I’m getting nothing but the fingers from Mr McGregor.’
The court was then adjourned and at some point late in the morning McGregor was spotted rolling up to the courthouse in a BMW sports car.
He was wearing a matching pair of green Adidas jogging bottoms and sweatshirt along with white trainers.
Last time McGregor’s case was before the same court on November 24, his ‘business manager’ appeared in his place. On that date, Judge Walsh said McGregor must either appear in court himself – or send a legal represenative.
Under current Irish laws, speeding results in a fine of €80 (£70) with three penalty points. If that is not paid within 28 days, the fine increases to €120 (£105).
