Conor McGregor is working on a plea deal in his bus attack case, according to a report.

McGregor is due to appear in a Brooklyn court on Thursday to address the charges he faces from his bus attack in April. McGregor is facing two felony counts of criminal mischief and several misdemeanors for attacking a bus filled with UFC fighters ahead of UFC 223.

TMZ Sports reports that McGregor is working on a plea deal. A plea deal could include a fine, probation, and community service.
