‘Commando’ Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be pressing charges after he was kicked in the back by a man in South Africa

Hollywood Action Film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked on Saturday (18.05.19) during his visit to South Africa but he will not be pressing charges.

The 71-year-old actor and former California governor was in the country for Arnold Classic Africa, a multi-sport event held in Johannesburg each May.

A video shows Schwarzenegger on the sidelines filming a rope-skipping competition on a phone. As he turns back around to hand the phone over, a man runs from behind and jump-kicks Schwarzenegger in the back. Security quickly grabbed the man and took him away. A few moments later, a person can be heard repeatedly shouting, “Help me! I need a Lamborghini!”, CNN reported.

Schwarzenegger did not seem fazed. The video shows him leaving the venue soon after, and a few hours later, he posted a video of himself on Twitter greeting fans like nothing happened.

Eventually, Schwarzenegger addressed the incident and reassured everyone he was fine. “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,” the Terminator posted.

Schwarzenegger also asked fans to take the focus off the man who attacked him by instead sharing videos of the young athletes at the festival.

The unnamed man was later handed over to police officers, event officials said. On Sunday, Schwarzenegger said in a tweet that he would not be taking the case further, adding: “I’m moving on”.

The Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, author, philanthropist, activist, politician, former professional bodybuilder and powerlifter is known for his roles in the ‘The Terminator’ movies, ‘Total Recall’ and his 1984 blockbuster ‘Commando’.
