Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Sunday that he won't press charges against the man accused of assaulting him over the weekend.
"A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges," the 71-year-old "Terminator" star tweeted. "I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track. But I’m moving on and I’d rather focus on the thousands of great athletes I met at @ArnoldSports Africa."
On Saturday, a video went viral of the former Republican governor of California at an Arnold Classic Africa event in Johannesburg, South Africa, when a man rushed and dropkicked Schwarzenegger from behind.
The governator wasn't hurt, but appeared briefly startled as security personnel rushed the suspect.
Arnold thanked everyone for their concerned but said he was unphased. He also was thankful that it did not ruin his snapchat.
And if you have to share the video (I get it), pick a blurry one without whatever he was yelling so he doesn’t get the spotlight.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 18, 2019
