CONOR McGregor has been arrested on suspicion of attempted sexual assault and indecent exposure by French police, according to reports.
The UFC star, 32, vigorously denies the claims after he was held by cops early yesterday following an incident in a bar in Corsica.
He was held just hours before he was due to take part in a 80-mile water bike dash from Corsica to Monaco as part of a campaign to highlight water safety.
A statement from the prosecutor's office given to AFP read: "Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor was the subject of a hearing by the gendarmerie services."
A representative for McGregor has told TMZ: "Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct.
"He has been interviewed and released."
The retired MMA star had been on holiday in Corsica amid rumours that he's planning a UFC comeback.
His arrest comes just days after the US anti doping agency came to test him in Corsica despite the fact he has retired – and he posted an image of the kit he had been sent on his Twitter account.
He wrote: ''What's going on here @UFC'' adding:''I've retired guys ! But go on then, I'll allow them to test me. IT's all natural baby !''
Last night he was reported to be in custody in the town of Calvi in Corsica.
Earlier this week, The Sun reported how the Irish MMA star went on a topless run in Corsica with his team of trainers following in a black car behind him.
As part of the charity event, McGregor was due to travel from Calvi to Monaco as quickly as possible on a water bike.
The MMA legend was also pictured planting a kiss on bride-to-be Dee's lips while he has also been dining on a diet of bloody steak and whiskey on his Corsica holiday.
