Celebrity gossip website TMZ.com reports that UFC Hall of Famer and ex-WWE star Ken Shamrock has been accused of assaulting a woman that he originally thought was a man while trying to break up a fight at a shopping mall in California last month.
The website reports that as Shamrock was trying to break up a fight between two women, he was jumped by a bystander. Shamrock managed to take the bystander down to the ground and apply some sort of hold, only to be told that the bystander was a woman. Shamrock immediately backed off once he was informed of this.
Shamrock had a battery report filed against him by an officer, but prosecutors say it is likely that no charges will be filed against Shamrock since he believed that he was acting in self defense.
