A Garda spokesperson confirmed in March that a man was arrested in relation to the incident and taken to Lucan Garda Station. He was later released.

In a statement, the police service said: 'Gardai arrested a man aged in his 30s in relation to an incident of dangerous driving in the Palmerstown area yesterday evening, Tuesday 22nd March 2022.

'The man was taken to Lucan Garda Station where he was later charged. He has been released pending an appearance before Blanchardstown District Court at a later date.'

A spokeswoman for McGregor told MailOnline at the time: 'Mr McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by Gardai for alleged road traffic violations.

'He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.'

McGregor is currently on the comeback path and has not fought since losing against Dustin Poirier back in July last year, a fight which saw him break his leg in his third defeat in four matches. 

'The Notorious', a former two-weight world champion, is expected to return to the Octagon later this year and has vowed to fight again for a world title despite losing his last two bouts. 

Although the date and opponent when he returns has not yet been confirmed, McGregor is reportedly keen to face the winner of the Justin Gaethje vs Charles Oliveira fight in May, with a mooted return in early July.
