Fan CM Punk Attacked Considering Hiring an Attorney

Laura Cole revealed in a local news report in the Sacramento area that Charles Schmidt, the wrestling fan who was attacked by CM Punk during Monday’s Raw, is considering hiring an attorney for a possible lawsuit following the incident.

The news report noted that local police are not following up on the incident because at the time the police report was filed, Schmidt said he did not want to press charges. Tuesday, Cole reached out to Schmidt, who noted he is considering a suit.

Schmidt said in a post-Raw interview that he did not touch Punk before Punk struck him, was “a little upset with Punk,” and was mainly “just shocked about how his night of entertainment ended with him getting smacked on live TV.”
