Former WWE superstar accused of battering a woman



source: TMZ.com

UFC hall-of-famer Ken Shamrock — one of the greatest MMA fighters ever — has been accused of battering a woman at a California mall … but Ken claims it was an honest mistake … ’cause he thought she was a he.

Shamrock — whose nickname is “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” — was hangin’ out at a mall in Modesto, CA last month when he saw two women fighting each other in front of the Coach store … surrounded by a group of lookie loos filming the whole thing.

We’re told Shamrock dove into the scrap and tried to pry the women apart … when one of the bystanders, a HEAVYSET bystander, jumped on his back and tried to rip Ken out of the pile.

Shamrock’s rep tells TMZ … he threw the person off of his back and followed up with a move that knocked the attacker to the ground.

After the person was incapacitated, the crowd shouted at Ken, “You just hit a girl.” Ken took a closer look and realized the attacker was in fact a female .. so he immediately backed off.

An officer arrived to the scene and took a battery report against Shamrock, noting the only injury was a slight abrasion to the woman’s knee. The report was sent to the District Attorney’s Office.

But law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Shamrock probably won’t be prosecuted because officials don’t feel the woman he knocked to the ground is a “victim.” In fact, they believe Ken was acting in self-defense.

Shamrock’s rep notes, “Outside the ring, Ken is not a violent man … and was only trying to do the right thing.”

    She randomly jumped on his back & started attacking him, he flung her off & then restrained her til he found out it was a her. That’s not really battery it’s Self Defense.

    Love TMZ… such incompetent a-holes.

    Face it… the woman attacked Ken, and for all he knew, it could have been someone who was going to try and kill him. I would have not only thrown the woman off, but kicked her in the head. You NEVER know what someone is carrying on their person, or what there real intentions are when they attack you.

    It’s them or you, you can’t blame someone for defending against another’s stupidity.

    did he apply the ankle lock…we gotta know TMZ.

  4. Rory says:

    He shoulda yelled “GET OUT OF MY WAY!!!” and she would have stopped.

  5. Agent Cooper says:

    I miss Ken Shamrock. He was one of my favorites during the Attitude era.

  6. Bob Barker says:

    Doesn’t matter if it as a male or a female who attacked him. It was self defence and Ken did the right thing.

    It could have been Vito

    Damn, Ryan got fat.

  9. mikey says:

    Inside the ring/cage Ken isn’t a violent man either.

  10. Thomas says:

    Smart money says he said “Jump on my back” to the she-he right before jumping in the fray….

  11. Twist1 says:

    “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” defeated “The World’s Manliest Woman” via K.O. in 0:10 of Round 1

  12. Boogeyman says:

    Heavy set = a fatty therefore easy mistake to think it was a dude. Plus totally fair game if she was bigger!!!

  13. ELNYIS says:

    when I saw this i thought of the family guy episode where peter punched the lady that looked like a dude.

  14. Joan B. in S. C. says:

    @ELNYIS, I just told a co-worker about that a couple of days ago. He said that’s why he tries not to punch too many people.

  15. Drew says:

    Ken did nothing wrong.

    Shamrock was the main draw that got me into watching TNA – he won their NWA World Heavyweight Battle Royal on the first ever PPV. They did an alright job of booking him too. Eventually the X-Division caught on and that’s what kept me going back every Wednesday to order those $10 PPVs. Shit, that was all of my freaking lunch money for a week too! hah

  17. Chris James says:

    Typical. Bunch of people filming a fight instead of doing something. That’s 2012 America.

  18. DD says:

    Did his best peter griffin imitation

    The only fight Ken’s won in years…
