An incident during WrestleMania week has ramifications.
In New Orleans at Wrestlecon, Davey Boy Smith reportedly confronted Jake Roberts about some negative things Roberts said about Smith's father the British Bulldog. Smith threw coffee on Roberts during the altercation and now according to Pro Wrestling Sheet, the New Orleans police are looking for Smith. The following is a statement from the police department issued to 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.
It was also reported that in an interview for Wrestle Zone, Smith admitted to throwing coffee and said he had asked Roberts to "step outside."
