WWE Star Kevin Nash's Battery Charge Dropped

If you're about 7 feet tall, you tend to tower over most people. Kevin Nash's mugshot after his recent arrest illustrates this - he was taller than the measuring chart at the police station. A former WWE wrestler, Kevin Nash's battery arrest stemmed from an incident last month involving his wife, reports TMZ.

Nash (aka "Diesel" and "Big Sexy") and his wife were walking on the street when a man attempted to hit on Nash's wife, walking close to her and eventually getting aggressive. That's right, this guy decided to hit on the wife of 7-foot professional wrestler. Apparently the man even going at Nash with a beer bottle according to TMZ. Nash then stepped in.

He held the man down on the floor until police arrived - but police arrested Nash instead on suspicion of battery. The charges were later dropped.

Not before his mugshot was released, showing his impressive height, that is. At 7-feet tall, Nash certainly does not look like someone you'd want to mess with. So, it's strange that some random guy on the street decided to hit on Nash's wife, with Nash standing right next to her.

"I'm a 52-year-old fake fighter. My hands aren't deadly weapons," he told TMZ after the arrest.

What likely happened in the arrest is that police arrived on the scene to see 7-foot Nash holding down a relatively shorter man. Police probably mistakenly thought that a battery had occurred. But no one knows what the police were thinking - just that they arrested Nash but opted not to charge him.

So, Kevin Nash's battery arrest was all for naught (although Nash could conceivably file suit against the police if he wanted to). As for Kevin Nash's mugshot? It's still circulating on the internet.
