Stop me if you've heard this one before: Conor McGregor is in trouble.
The superstar mixed martial artist and former UFC champ was rung up Monday evening on charges of felony robbery and criminal mischief by law enforcement in Miami Beach after allegedly destroying a fan's cell phone outside a famous resort, as reported by David Ovalle of the Miami Herald.

As the local police maintain, McGregor was leaving the nightclub located inside the Fontainebleu Miami Beach resort in the early hours of Monday morning when the phone-smashing incident occurred.
Specifically, once the phone was on the ground, McGregor is said to have stomped on it multiple times before taking it with him from the scene.
You know, just in case.
His Miami defense lawyer, Samuel Rabin, said McGregor "was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation."— David Ovalle (@DavidOvalle305) March 11, 2019
Seemingly nothing has gone right for McGregor ever since he attacked an entire bus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. last spring. He went on to be stopped by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October, and found himself suspended from the Octagon and fined after the event descended into absolute chaos.
He won't be forced to spend the night behind bars, per Ovalle, but he's still got a heck of a lot of explaining to do.
