Conor McGregor was arrested in Ireland over his reckless driving. Video evidence has now surfaced and the MMA star did not go quietly at all. In fact, he wanted to race.

Notorious strapped in with a Fast & The Furious mindset, and TMZ snagged the video. It was reported that the 33-year-old UFC fighter was neck-and-neck with another car on the Dublin highway.

It didn’t take long for sirens to blare as the white police cruiser pulled up behind Conor. Still, this was a pretty hectic moment. It’s not clear how fast McGregor was going in the video, but he was obviously booking it. Then he was eventually booked by the police for this driving infraction.

McGregor was administered drug and alcohol tests at the police station and he passed. That didn’t stop them from slapping a few infractions on him. McGregor didn’t seem to sweat those moving violations.

We’ll have to see what’s next for Conor McGregor, but he sure knows how to drive that Bentley while recovering from a broken leg.
