Mcgregor working on plea agreement
Mixed martial arts star Conor Mcgregor expressed regret Thursday for a backstage melee at a Brooklyn, N.Y., arena and is in plea negotiations to resolve charges in the case. The 29-yearold Irish fighter and co-defendant Cian Cowley remained free on bail after a brief court appearance. Assistant district attorney Janet Gleeson said the case hasn’t been presented to a grand jury for possible indictment because of the plea negotiations, signalling interest from all sides in resolving the matter swiftly. Video footage showed Mcgregor hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a press conference for UFC 223 at Barclays Center in April. They are due back in court July 26.
