It's apparently still real to some, dammit.
Patricia Anne Crowe, 59, was arrested this past Saturday on charges of aggravated assault and reckless conduct after holding independent wrestler Paul Lee at gunpoint at an AWF show in Ringgold, GA.
The ruckus started when Lee tied another wrestler in the ropes and was hitting him with a chair. Crowe then ran to the ring with a knife to try and help the wrestler escape.
"She was reaching through the ring, cutting him loose," Lee told WRCB.
Lee told her to "sit her toothless self down," at which point Crowe drew a 38-caliber handgun at Lee and his manager.
"Ms. Crowe did indeed pull the gun on Mr. Lee because of the way he'd talked to her," police Cpl. Chris Faulk told The Catoosa County News. "She said, 'he was talking mean to me, and I got mad. I guess I just let my temper get the best of me and I pulled my pistol on him'."
Lee was able to take the weapon and hold Crowe until police arrived. Crowe was arrested and released from the Catoosa County Jail on Monday after posting a $4,000 bond.
"The sheriff's office called me to let me know they let her out Monday on a $4,000 bond," Lee told The Catoosa County News. "I think it should have been a higher bond than that. She pulled a gun on me in front of kids and everything….it was just crazy."
Lee said that additional security will be added to the arena, including installing metal detectors at the entrances.
Crowe has been banned from all future AWF wrestling events.
