The Terminator is 71-years-old and was attending an event in South Africa today when some looney tune decided drop-kicking Arnold Schwarzenegger was a good idea. It wasn’t.
Source: The Hollywood icon was in Sandton Saturday for a sporting event that bares his name — the Arnold Classic Africa, which hosts kids in a ton of judged sporting events. Arnold himself was minding his business, taking photos and chatting with fans … when he got blindsided. An unidentified man ran up to Arnold’s back and leaped into a drop-kick maneuver, making contact with the actor and propelling him forward. The dude was immediately swarmed by security and detained. Reports say he was removed from the facility. As for Arnold, he says he’s doing alright … telling fans there was “nothing to worry about” and that he didn’t even realize he was kicked until he saw the video afterward. He quipped that he was glad the guy didn’t interrupt his Snapchat video.
Arny didn’t even get knocked down, and then buddy gets the beat down from security. Newsflash kids, don’t do stupid shit like this.
Somebody blindsided Arnold Schwarzenegger with a running drop kick and it was like when that biker hit him with a pool stick in T2. It barely fazed him. He’s 71! pic.twitter.com/XBlYBlCupH
