WrestleMania week was a very big week for the world of professional wrestling and a lot of things happened, both good and bad.
At WrestleCon there was an incident involving Harry smith, aka Davey Boy Smith Jr., who threw coffee in Jake Roberts’ face, and Pro Wrestling Sheet is now reporting that Smith is wanted by the police. A rep from the New Orleans Police Department provided the following statement to PWS:
“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.”
The NOPD have confirmed that Smith is “wanted for battery in connection with this incident” and are asking anyone with additional information to contact them.
The incident escalated after Jake Roberts refused to apologize for negative comments that he made about Smith’s father, and also refused to step outside so they could settle their differences. Smith then responded by throwing coffee in the face of the WWE Hall of Famer.
