Ken Shamrock (28-15-2), a UFC Hall of Famer, was in a scuffle and has been accused of attacking a woman at a California mall. Shamrock claims he was only trying to help defuse a brawl he witnessed.
While at the mall, Shamrock noticed two women fighting and tried to break the fight up. It has been alleged that a female bystander jumped on his back, so he took the bystander to the ground.
Someone from the crowd shouted that he attacked a girl and he immediately backed off.
Officers arrived to file a report that was sent to the District Attorney’s Office.
TMZ spoke to law enforcement and said Shamrock likely won’t be prosecuted because he was attacking in self-defense.
A representative for Shamrock said, “Outside the ring, Ken is not a violent man … and was only trying to do the right thing.”
