Conor McGregor ‘assault’ victim’s car torched in Dublin

Conor McGregor allegedly assaulted a woman on a boat. Recently, the woman’s vehicle was also set on fire.

The MMA champion allegedly assaulted, kicked, and threatened to drown Samantha Murphy before she leapt from the boat and broke her arm. After travelling back to Ireland, she filed a formal complaint regarding McGregor with Dublin police.

At the request of her attorneys, the inquiry into the alleged incident has been reopened in Spain. The incident is said to have taken place aboard her superyacht in Ibiza in July 2022.

MailOnline reported that since then, it has come to light that Irish police are looking into an arson assault this month on her vehicle.

A spokesperson for the Irish police stated:

“Gardai are investigating a suspected criminal damage by fire incident that occurred at approximately 10pm on Thursday, January 19, 2023 at a residential premises in Drimnagh, Dublin 12.”

“No injuries were reported during the course of this incident. No arrests have been made at this stage. Investigations are ongoing.”

According to Ms. Murphy’s mother, “That [the fire] was very scary. I was at my daughter’s at the time and someone tried to set her car on fire. We had to call the police and they came out to deal with it and what with the case it’s made her very jumpy.”

Due to the victim’s failure to provide a complete statement while on the island of Formentera, police shelved their first investigation into the alleged assault.

The alleged altercation took place the day after Conor McGregor’s 34th birthday celebration in July. Murphy informed the Irish police that McGregor suddenly became aggressive, kicking and punching her before threatening to drown her.

She stated: “It was as if he was possessed. I knew I had to leave the boat because I thought he was going to kill me. We have common friends and I have met him on a number of occasions. I can’t believe what he did to me.”

“He’s a criminal. I think he would have killed me if I hadn’t left the yacht.”
