Now it seems that that was not the extent of the Irishman's misbehaviour.

If I'm security I do exactly what they did. High was cut from the promotion subsequently. However, McGregor has said that he wants equity in the company and is demanding much larger paydays.

But his actions were met with a furious response from McGregor.
