Conor McGregor won't be going to jail.
The UFC star pleaded guilty to one charge of disorderly conduct in a Brooklyn, New York criminal court today (Thursday) for his April 5th meltdown at Barclays Center. He'll have to do five days of community service and attend an anger management program.
According to ESPN, he "entered the plea as part of a deal worked out with the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office. The agreement involves no jail time and will not affect McGregor's travel visa. He will not have a criminal record."
Outside the courthouse, McGregor told reporters, "I just want to say I'm thankful to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward. I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans -- thank you for your support."
He had faced 12 criminal charges, including two felonies, as well as deportation and prison time.
In April, McGregor was caught on video hurling a dolly into the window of a bus parked inside the Barclays Center loading dock. A group of UFC athletes and employees was inside the vehicle and several had suffered injuries.

Michelle Williams is married.
The actress made the revelation in an interview with Vanity Fair, saying that she and indie musician Phil Elverum wed earlier this month after a “very sacred and very special” and secret courtship.
The two got hitched in a small ceremony in the Adirondacks with a few friends and their daughters present. Michelle has a 12-year-old daughter with the late Heath Ledger, and Phil has a three-year-old with his first wife, who died of cancer in 2016. This is Michelle's first marriage.
She tells the magazine, “Obviously I’ve never once in my life talked about a relationship. But Phil isn’t anyone else. And that’s worth something. Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole. I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free.”
Michelle had been in a three-year relationship with Heath Ledger before his 2008 death. “I never gave up on love. I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.’”
