Surveillance footage allegedly shows McGregor slapping the fan’s phone out of his hand as he was taking a photo and stomping on it several times. McGregor then picked up the $1,000 phone and walked away with it.
McGregor, 30, is facing charges of misdemeanour criminal mischief and strong-armed robbery and was later released on a $125,000 bond, the Miami Herald reported.
He released a statement on his social media accounts saying, “Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on.
I love my fans dearly. Thank you all ❤️”
