WWE fan who attacked Bret Hart reportedly charged with assault

Bret Hart fan

The fan who attacked Bret Hart during the WWE Hall of Fame event in Brooklyn on Saturday night is reportedly facing several charges.

Hart, 61, was in the middle of honoring the late Jim Neidhart when a fan somehow made his way into the ring and tackled The Hitman. According to Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times, the fan has been charged with two counts of assault and one count of disorderly conduct.

WWE confirmed in a statement that the fan managed to bypass security and was eventually apprehended and turned over to authorities.

While some understandably thought the incident was staged at first, the way the WWE Network broadcast cut out when the fan tackled Hart made it clear it was not.

The fan quickly paid the price for his actions from a physical standpoint when he was pummeled by several people, and now he will have to deal with the legal ramifications of his actions.
