Former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was detained last Thursday following allegations of sexual exhibition and sexual assault, just hours before the “Notorious” athlete was expected to participate in a charity bike race in Corsica.

McGregor, who vehemently denies any wrongdoing, was released after questioning from local authorities. The criminal complaint against the power-punching Irishman is considered active and police are expected to process “key physical tests” by the end of the week.

According to a new report from TV broadcaster France 3 Corse (transcribed by The Sun), the alleged victim was “deeply shocked” after McGregor “flashed his private parts” during a night of “heavy drinking” in the port town of Calvi.

“According to a witness who spoke with the complainant that same evening and whom we were able to question, McGregor, accompanied by his bodyguards, allegedly exhibited his private parts to the young woman without her consent as she made her way into the bar toilets,” the report read.

McGregor, 32, has not been charged with a crime and remains innocent until proven guilty.
