TMZ has an article up on former WWE star and UFC vet Ken Shamrock. Shamrock is accused of assaulting a woman that he thought was a man. Shamrock allegedly assaulted the woman while trying to break up a fight at a mall in California. He says he thought the woman was a man and backed off once he realized it was a woman.

Shamrock allegedly slammed a bystander who jumped in and put him in a hold on the ground. Shamrock was then informed by another bystander that the person he just knocked out was a woman. Police filed a batter report against Shamrock but charged will likely be dismissed because he believed he was acting in self defense.
