Conor McGregor is out of the woods with Irish authorities following an investigation into an Instagram post featuring him pointing an airsoft gun out of a vehicle.

According to a report from TMZ Sports, Irish police have concluded their investigation, determining that “no offense was committed.”

The UFC Featherweight Champion is back in action on March 5 at UFC 197, as he attempts to capture the UFC Lightweight Championship from Rafael dos Anjos.

Penick’s Analysis: Given it wasn’t a real gun, and there was nothing more than a couple of Instagram posts to go off of, this isn’t surprising. McGregor was also cooperative with authorities throughout the process, likely helping his case as well. Regardless, he can move forward with no further consequences on that incident.
