Arnold Schwarzenegger Will NOT Press Charges Against Drop Kick Bandit Who Assaulted Him


There Arnold Schwarzenegger was, minding how own business and doing some good at the Arnold Classic Africa sporting event in South Africa when out of nowhere, he was kicked off his feet.

And yes, the whole thing was caught on video.

So, Schwarzenegger is going to press charges, right?

“Update: A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges,” the Terminator star wrote on his Twitter page on Sunday (May 19.) “I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track. But I’m moving on and I’d rather focus on the thousands of great athletes I met at @ArnoldSports Africa.”

On Saturday (May 18,) Schwarzenegger also headed to his Twitter page to update fans soon after the incident took place.

“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,” he wrote. “I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

Thanks goodness the much-loved actor is ok! He’s also reminding everyone to not dwell on the guy who caused all the trouble.

“Do me a favor,” he wrote. “Instead of sharing the video of the guy who wants to be famous, watch some of our Arnold Sports athletes like this young hero proving that fitness is for everyone who deserve to be famous. They’re on my Snapchat.”
