Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he will not be laying charges against a man who attacked him at an event in Sandton, South Africa.
According to reports, the man who kicked the actor from behind is “known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past”.
The actor was in Mzansi to attend the Arnold Classic Africa Festival, which is one of the biggest multi-sporting events of its kind in Africa, when the incident occurred.
A clip of a fan running towards the actor and kicking him from behind has since gone viral on social media. Schwarzenegger was pushed into the crowd as a result of the kick.
Security officers immediately removed the man from the Sandton Convention Centre.
In a statement by Schwarzenegger’s team, the actor confirmed that he will not be laying charges against the suspect.
