AceShowbiz - Former UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) star Conor McGregor is reportedly seeking a plea deal in his assault case.
The 29-year-old Irishman was charged with assault, criminal mischief, and several other criminal acts in April for allegedly attacking a bus containing rival fighters backstage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, alongside fellow fighter Artem Lobov and more than a "dozen individuals".
Video footage appeared to show McGregor throwing a trolley at the bus - smashing a window. Three fighters were reportedly injured in the fracas.
On Thursday, June 14, McGregor appeared at the Kings County Supreme Courthouse in Brooklyn, where his lawyers told a judge they are working on a plea deal with officials at the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office. He is due back in court next month, according to ESPN.com.

Meanwhile, after the court hearing, McGregor expressed his regret over the alleged altercation.
"I regret my actions that led to today," he said outside of the courthouse. "I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful this will get worked out."
