McGregor and Cowley, who flew from Ireland on a private jet, appear in court for less than a minute regarding assault and criminal mischief charges stemming from a backstage melee in April. McGregor and Cowley’s team inform the court that they plan to negotiate a plea. The session is dismissed and the next hearing, where McGregor and Cowley’s team are expected to enter the actual plea, is announced for July 26. After the hearing a member of the legal team read a statement from McGregor:
I regret my actions that led me here today; I understand the seriousness of this matter and I’m hopeful it gets resolved soon. Thank you, everyone.
