TMZ.com is reporting that Davey Boy Smith Jr. (former WWE star DH Smith), the son of WWE legend the British Bulldog, is now wanted for battery by New Orleans police following an incident with WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts over WrestleMania 34 weekend.
According to the TMZ report, Smith reportedly threw coffee in the face of Roberts and the New Orleans Police Department is now investigating the allegations.
Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Smith is now “wanted for battery in connection with this incident”, an incident Smith reportedly admitted to openly.
A rep for the New Orleans Police Department told Pro Wrestling Sheet:
The NOPD is investigating a simple battery incident that occurred on April 7, 2018 in the 500 block of Canal Street. The victim told police that at about 11 a.m., he was signing autographs at the location when he was approached by a known subject, later identified as Harry Smith (DOB: 08-02-1985). The victim told police he attempted to shake hands with Smith, at which time a verbal argument ensued. Smith then allegedly threw a cup of coffee at the victim’s face and fled the scene. No major injuries were reported by the victim.
Roberts informed police Smith threw coffee at him, with Smith saying that Roberts refused to apologize for negative comments he had made about his father, the British Bulldog (who passed away in May of 2002) and refused to step outside to settle their differences in a fight. Smith says Jake told him to “f*ck off” at that point, so he threw coffee in his face.
The penalty for a simple battery in Louisiana can be up to 6 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $1000.
