Conor McGregor’s father has posted a picture of the pair together on Instagram, in an apparent show of support for his son.

McGregor has been charged with criminal mischief and assault after throwing metal dolly at a bus full of MMA fighters, injuring one of them in the face, in Brooklyn, New York City last week.

McGregor, a father of one, was released on $50,000 bail after a court hearing on Friday afternoon.
Despite being worth an estimated $84million, McGregor did not have access to the $75,000 cash handy that he needed to get both him and his friend Cian Cowley, who was also arrested and had his own bail set at $25,000, out of jail.
Yesterday, he was seen visiting bail bondsman Ira Judelson, who fronted the cash for both himself and Cowley.
As a wire transfer would have taken up to three days, McGregor opted to pay Judelson to get quick access to cash.
McGregor is still in New York City, but is free to go back to Ireland and is expected to in the next few days.
