Hollywood icon and former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked by a man in South Africa while visiting the country.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was in Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, Saturday for a sporting event Arnold Classic Africa, which hosts kids in a ton of judged sporting events when he was attacked.
The 71-year old was going about his business when a man drop-kicked him from behind while he was taking photos and chatting with fans. It was shocking as no one saw it coming.
The viral video shows an unidentified man run up to Arnold’s back and leaped into a drop-kick maneuver, hitting the actor and pushing him forward. Immediately, he was swarmed by security and detained then removed from the facility.
Arnold says he’s in a good condition, saying there is “nothing to worry about” and that he didn’t even realize he was kicked until he saw the video afterward. He went on to say that he was glad the idiot hadn’t interrupt his Snapchat video.
Report says Arnold isn’t looking to press charges, but it might very well be out of his hands. Watch the video that captures the incident below.
