Spectator charged with as­sault­ing WWE star Hart

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Au­thor­i­ties say a spectator faces assault and tres­pass­ing charges af­ter tack­ling wrestler Bret “The Hit­man” Hart while he was giv­ing a speech dur­ing the WWE Hall of Fame cer­e­mony in Brook­lyn.

Bail was set at $1,500 for Zachary Mad­sen of Lin­coln, Ne­braska at a hear­ing on Sun­day night. The judge also is­sued or­ders of pro­tec­tion bar­ring Mad­sen from ap­proach­ing Hart, who wasn’t hurt, and a se­cu­rity worker.

Other wrestlers helped sub­due the at­tacker. Hart re­sumed his speech.

Pros­e­cu­tors said in court that Mad­sen told po­lice that he “felt like it was right mo­ment” to go af­ter the wrestling le­gend.
