Former WWE Star Accused of Assaulting a Woman He Thought Was a Man
Former WWE Star Ken Shamrock is accused of assaulting a woman while trying to break up a fight at a California mall. Shamrock says he thought the woman was a man and he backed off once the realization was made.
According to TMZ, a bystander jumped him as Shamrock was trying to break up a fight between two women last month. Shamrock proceeded to dump the bystander to the ground and apply a hold. He was then alerted by another person that he just knocked out a woman, prompting Shamrock to stop.
An officer filed a battery report against Shamrock, but prosecutors told TMZ that charges likely will not be filed against Shamrock because he believed he was acting in self-defense.
