The MMA fighter had been driving on the motorway in his convertible Bentley Continental GT in Dublin when he was stopped by gardaí on Tuesday, 22 March.

He was taken to Lucan Garda Station and charged with dangerous driving before being released the same evening, but footage shared on Twitter has now revealed what took place in the moments before McGregor was caught by police.

The video, posted by a user called Aiden, is filmed by a passenger in another car a couple of lanes away from McGregor's on the motorway. The person behind the camera can be heard saying 'quick' as they appear to encourage the driver to get to a point where they can see McGregor, before winding down the window and shouting 'up the Mac' towards the UFC star.

McGregor can be seen looking in the direction of the camera as sirens start to sound behind him, after which the person behind the camera expresses their shock at the fact McGregor is being pulled over.

The Irish Independent reports McGregor's Bentley was seized from him on the roadside as a result his arrest, but it is understood the car has since been returned to him.

A spokesperson for McGregor told LADbible: "Mr McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by gardaí for alleged road traffic violations. He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station."

If convicted of dangerous driving, McGregor could face a maximum punishment of a fine up to €5,000 (£4,160) or six months imprisonment, or both.

McGregor acknowledged the footage on Twitter as he responded to a member of the public who accused him of undertaking on the motorway.

In a since-deleted tweet, McGregor responded: "Undertaking? That is the auxiliary lane on Dublin's M50. I was preparing to take the exit that takes me to my gym."

McGregor has been training to return to the ring after suffering a leg injury last July, with images shared on his social media pages showing him training at Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin.
