Man Arrested After Attacking WWE Wrestler on Live TV [Video]

The New York Police Department (NYPD) arrested a man after attacking WWE wrestler Seth Rollins during a live event.

Police said that Elisah Spencer, 24, charged at Rollins and tackled him during a live broadcast of WWE’s Monday Night Raw at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Officials said Spencer left his seat and jumped over the security barricade at about 9:20 p.m., running at and tackling Rollins, who is one of the promotion’s biggest stars.

Rollins was walking down the entrance ramp toward the backstage area after a match with wrestler Finn Balor. As Rollins, real name Colby Lopez, reached the top of the ramp, Spencer came charging and roughly tackled him. Videos surfaced on social media showing the attacker and Rollins fighting on the ground before security and WWE personnel separated them.

The altercation was briefly visible on the live broadcast before cameras cut away as it became apparent that it wasn’t a planned segment.

According to the NYPD, Rollins suffered a swollen lip from the attack but refused medical attention.

“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” WWE said in a statement. “The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Spencer was charged with attempted assault and attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs (disrupting a live sporting event).

Former NYPD officer sentenced to 4 years in murder-for-hire plot

A former New York Police Department officer Valerie Cincinelli received a four-year prison sentence for obstruction in an alleged murder-for-hire plot to kill her estranged husband and her boyfriend’s teenaged daughter.

“This conduct is particularly egregious considering Cincinelli was a uniformed NYPD officer at the time of her crimes,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Catherine Mirabile in a sentencing memo.

Prosecutors agreed to drop the two murder-for-hire charges against Cincinelli in exchange for her guilty plea, which she entered on April 16. Cincinelli pled guilty to one count of obstruction for deleting incriminating evidence on her phone.

The then-officer allegedly paid John Dirubba, her then-boyfriend, to hire a hitman to kill her estranged husband, Isaiah Carvalha Jr., amid a custody battle.

She later included Dirubba’s 13-year-old daughter as a target “out of sheer jealously and personal hatred,” prosecutors said.
