Conor McGregor has been accused by an unidentified woman of sexual assault during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Denver Nuggets and the Miami Heat.

According to legal documents, McGregor “violently” forced himself on the woman inside a VIP men’s bathroom at Kaseya Center. The boxer also allegedly “aggressively kissed her” and attempted to force her into various sexual acts. The alleged victim has accused the Miami Heat and NBA security of aiding McGregor by separating her from her friend and forcing her into the bathroom with him.

Video of the incident in question went public on Friday, via TMZ.

In the video, McGregor leaves a restroom to speak with a woman. After exchanging words, Conor grabs her hand and creates a path for them to go into the bathroom. Then, the restroom door closes and the footage ends.

“My client was under the belief they were leaving and going to the Four Seasons Hotel, as Conor had previously asked her to join him at his hotel room,” Ariel Mitchell, the accuser’s lawyer, said. “The man with the braids then stopped at the door of the bathroom, when Conor grabbed my client. My client believed they were leaving, but instead, Conor took her into the restroom.”

McGregor’s attorney, Barbara R. Llanes, told TMZ that she thinks believes this is an attempt by the accuser to get money.

“After the video was released by TMZ, the claimant’s lawyer now has changed her story. Mr. McGregor welcomes the investigation, which he firmly believes will show the claims against him are false. After not responding to the demand for money made by the claimant’s counsel, she turned to the media to apply pressure. This is no more than a shakedown.”
