Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He Won’t Be Pressing Charges Against Man Who Drop-Kicked Him

Not many would go after Arnold Schwarzenegger, expect this one person in South Africa.

While at Arnold Classic Africa, the former bodybuilder was drop-kicked by a man while he was taking pictures with some fans.

Schwarzenegger, 71, was there to judge a skipping competition when a man ran across the gymnasium and kicked the former California governor.

His bodyguards quickly detained the man who sounded like he was then yelling, “help me, I need a Lamborghini.”

“The Terminator” left a few minutes later surrounded by security, although seemed unharmed by the incident.

Later that day he posted a picture on Twitter of him meeting more fans for his Arnold Sports Africa festival.

Schwarzenegger then told his fans there is “nothing to worry about”. He added he didn’t even know he was kicked until he saw the video and thought he was just being “jostled by the crowd.”

He then added that he hopes people will share video of the young athletes and not the man kicking him.

Although he does give an alternative to those who have to share it.

The day after the incident, Schwarzenegger returned to Twitter to clarify that he won’t be taking any legal action against his would-be attacker.

“A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges,” he wrote in an update, adding that he hopes the whole thing serves as “a wake-up call” to the man, and that “he gets his life on the right track.”
