AceShowbiz - New York police have arrested a man on suspicion of attacking wrestling icon Bret "The Hitman" Hart (Bret Hart) during the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday, April 06.
The 61-year-old star was honouring his former tag team partner and brother-in-law, Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart (Jim Neidhart), onstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn when he was tackled by a member of the audience.
He was promptly taken down by a group of celebrity onlookers, including Xavier Woods, Tyson Kidd, and UFC star Travis Browne, who is married to fighter-turned-actress Ronda Rousey, and was held down by security guards until cops arrived to take the man into custody.
