Arnie was attacked last month while signing autographs and posing for selfies at the Arnold Sports Festival at the Santon Convention Centre in Sandton, South Africa. 

In video captured of the incident, a man can be seen taking a flying leap to drop-kick Schwarzenegger in the back. The man then lands in a heap on the floor, while the wall-like Schwarzenegger is merely shoved forward into the crowd, staying on his feet the whole time.  

The man who drop-kicked Schwarzenegger in the back has been described as a ‘crazed fan’ who strategically planned his attack and has a history of pulling similar disruptive stunts.

The Terminator star said he won’t press charges and is urging the public to not give the perpetrator the fame he craves.
