Arnold Schwarzenegger Won’t Press Charges Against Attacker

On Sunday, Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he will not be pressing charges against the man who assaulted him over the weekend in South Africa.

The actors tweeted, “A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges,” the 71-year-old “Terminator” star tweeted. “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.”

As we previously covered on Saturday, a video went viral of the former Republican governor of California at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, when a man rushed and dropkicked Schwarzenegger from behind. Although it looked very painful, Schwarzenegger said he wasn’t hurt, but appeared briefly startled as security personnel rushed the suspect.

Shortly after the incident, Schwarzenegger tweeted, 

“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. 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.”

As of right now, it’s unclear why the man did this. He has yet to be identified, and apparently, that’s exactly how Schwarzenegger wants it.

“We have 90 sports here in South Africa at the @ArnoldSports, and 24,000 athletes of all ages and abilities inspiring all of us to get off the couch,” he tweeted. “Let’s put this spotlight on them.”
