"Conor is in a lot of trouble".
Police Officer George Tsourovakas said late Thursday that McGregor has not been formally charged.
"I had so many things thrown at me this week, to focus on this show was insane".
White said during Wednesday's pre-fight press conference "one of these guys will be the (lightweight) champion, period" in reference to Holloway and Nurmagomedov. "This is embarrassing for the sport and obviously for the UFC".
Police charged the 29-year-old with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief, according to Lee Jones, an NYPD spokesman.
McGregor's pal Cian Cowley was also arrested following the incident. Bail was set for Cowley at US$25,000 (RM97,000).
At least two people were injured when the bus window shattered, forcing them to withdraw from fights at this weekend's UFC 223 event. "This was a real bad career move for him".
McGregor last fought in a boxing match he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26, 2017.
Their matchup was one of the richest boxing bouts of all time.
The group went down to the loading dock where some fighters who were to participate in UFC 223 on Saturday were getting on buses.
"No ... no", White said.
