The New York Police Department wants to question Conor McGregor after the UFC star attacked a bus carrying fighters today in Brooklyn.

Currently, there is no warrant issued for McGregor's (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) arrest. But that could change if the NYPD is unable to convince the fighter to come in for an interview.

"Right now, we don't have units out there searching for him or anything like that," NYPD spokesperson Lt. Tarik Sheppard told MMAjunkie. "We're just trying to make contact."

Muslims: Settlement will prevent illegal NYPD surveillance

  Muslims: Settlement will prevent illegal NYPD surveillance The New York Police Department has agreed not to conduct surveillance based on religion or ethnicity as part of a deal to settle claims it illegally spied on Muslims after the Sept. 11 attacks. A deal announced Thursday by the city and the Islamic community also calls for the city to pay $75,000 in damages and nearly $1 million in legal fees. And it ensures surveillance in New Jersey will follow rules defined in another landmark civil rights case. Center for Constitutional Rights legal director Baher Azmy says the deal protects an increasingly empowered Muslim community.

McGregor was caught on camera throwing a dolly through the window of a bus at Barclays Center, which hosts Saturday's UFC 223. The incident left UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa injured and also injured a UFC employee, UFC President Dana White told reporters.

White indicated McGregor's intended target was UFC lightweight title challenger Khabib Nurmagomedov, who on Wednesday was involved in an altercation with McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov. White said Lobov was among a gang of 30 people led by McGregor and won't be allowed to fight at UFC 223.

White called the UFC lightweight champ's actions "criminal, disgusting," and "despicable."

White claimed an arrest warrant has been issued for McGregor, but Sheppard said the incident has not yet escalated to that level. The NYPD will work with the UFC and McGregor's camp to bring McGregor in for questioning. If McGregor comes in within a reasonable amount of time, there will be no need to issue a warrant.

Thursday afternoon, UFC president Dana White told reporters in Brooklyn, New York , that a warrant had been issued for Conor McGregor 's arrest following an incident at a media event at the CoveringTheCage.com later confirmed with the NYPD that McGregor was wanted for questioning .

"If (McGregor won't come in), there's an official way to go about it," Sheppard said. "Once a report is made and charges are filed, now it's not we're looking to speak to you - we're coming to speak to you. A warrant would be issued for your arrest. We're nowhere near something like that right now."

White predicted McGregor will turn himself to police if he isn't detained first.

"You can imagine he's going to be sued beyond belief, and this was a real bad career move for him," the UFC exec said.

Sheppard said from his understanding of the events that took place, McGregor's actions represent misdemeanor assault, which carries a maximum jail term of between three months and one year.

"However, I don't know the full status of what the person is saying in regards to their injuries," he said. "If their injuries include a disfigurement from the glass where they're going to be scarred for life, that would be a felony."

MMA coach Rick Little told MMAjunkie that Chiesa went to the hospital and is "cut up." MMAFighting.com reported Chiesa will still compete against ex-champ Anthony Pettis at UFC 223, but Little said his fighter wants to fight, but needs more evaluation and "took a good shot."

With no charges filed, Sheppard said there's no official time limit for McGregor to come in. But if the fighter is thinking about leaving the country on his private plane, he would be stopped.

"I think if he was at an airport right now, the police would walk up to him and say, 'Hey, we want to speak to you,' and he would not be allowed to leave," Sheppard said.
