A guy at an event in south Africa learned that the hard way after landing a flying kick into the 71-year-old's back. Check it out. Despite the attacker's running start, Arnold barely moved. The man was quickly tackled by security. Schwarzenegger later tweeted that he didn't realize that she was kicked until he saw the he thought that he was just jostled by the crowd. He added, just glad the idiot didn't interrupt my Snapchat. He's like, I'll be back. He's not hurt. He doesn't plan to press charges.
