On Saturday, actor and fmr. California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked while visiting a competition in Johannesburg. The attacker, whose name wasn’t disclosed, broke through the guards surrounding the 71-year-old actor and drop-kicked him in the back with a two-foot jump while he was taking pictures with participants of the competition.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will not press charges against a person who attacked him at a sporting event in Johannesburg. The actor tweeted a corresponding statement, expressing hope that what happened would be a “wake-up call” for the man attacking him and that “he gets his life on the right track.”
Later, Schwarzenegger reported that he considered the kick in the back as a push in the crowd.
The motives of the attacker, who was immediately detained by security officers, are still unknown.
