I'll disagree.

He would have known that McGregor was going to show up (remember the multiple camera angles and close ups?) He could have also known that McGregor was going to make a ruckus. I think he'd only be charged if the script indicated the actions that ensued.

Same as fisticuffs at the weigh-in.

Another dumb-ass that believed his own press. Haven't watched MMA in years.

Same here. It has turned into a slightly more legitimate version of the WWE. Not interested.

Actually, I think White would be on the hook regardless of what the script said.

I don't know how NY law works in this regard, but in Illinois you can be charged as an accomplice if you were involved in planning or encouraging something that goes awry and results in some crime occurring, in this case damage to property and personal injury.

It will be interesting to see how it plays out, I figure that McGregor will wind up pleading much of it down and agreeing to pay damages to the parties involved.

Very few multi-millionaires go to prison. One report said the cops were all fan-boi'd out at the station. All up to the DA in that area, I guess.

Quote:
The New York County District Attorney is the elected district attorney for New York County (Manhattan), New York. The office is responsible for the prosecution of violations of New York state laws. (Federal law violations in Manhattan are prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.) The current district attorney is Cyrus Vance, Jr.

District attorneys are legally permitted to delegate the prosecution of petty crimes or offenses. Prosecutors don't normally handle New York City Criminal Court summons court cases, and the Manhattan DA has a memorandum of understanding with the NYPD allowing the NYPD's Legal Bureau to selectively prosecute them.
How big is the NYC Irish Voter base?
