Ohhhhh yeah! Time to snap into a Slim Jim for this one.
Professional wrestler James Fullington, a.k.a. “the Sandman” was arrested Sunday night in Yonkers after throwing glasses at restaurant employees during a gathering of fellow wrestlers at La Lanterna. Hat tip goes out to our Yonkers crime reporter, Will David.
In case you haven’t brushed up on your wrestling history (shame on you if you haven’t), the Sandman was a multiple time heavyweight champion for Extreme Championship Wrestling, which eventually merged with World Wrestling Entertainment.
Police arrived at the restaurant at around 9:45 p.m. and found the Sandman throwing glasses at people in the restaurant. The Sandman then proceeded to throw glasses at the police.
Classy. I’m surprised he didn’t go for a running clothesline or a piledriver.
He was taken to the county jail in Valhalla for psychiatric treatment. I’m sure there will be more to come on this one, so stay tuned.
