Fan Spits On WWE Star

WWE Star Hits Back

2/8/2009 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It wasn't scripted -- WWE superstar Chris Jericho was involved in a crazy, expletive-filled mini-brawl with fans yesterday ... and one of the people involved was a woman.

Chris Jericho fan spit detained.
It all went down after a WWE event at the Save-On Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria, BC -- an angry crowd began heckling Chris Jericho as he was driving out of the parking lot. When Jericho stared down a female fan, that's when things got violent...

In the video, it appears she spit on the wrestler -- Jericho flipped out and the woman was knocked to the ground. At that point, one of the dudes in the crowd rushes in to attack Chris.

Jericho managed to shove that guy away -- and others who got close. During the melee, Chris can be heard screaming at security to "do your f***ing job." Finally, security tackled one of the men to the ground and Chris was able to get in his ride and take off.

Cops in Victoria -- who are currently investigating the incident -- called it a "minor event."

UPDATE: Two people who were allegedly involved in the incident were arrested and later released without being charged, according to the Times Colonist.

This would not have happened had Jericho still employed Ralphus.

I lived in Victoria for 5 years. The locals are "loser's" at best.
Inbred, the whole lot of them.

Loved it! That is Karma for Jericho! Maybe next time he won't be a jerk when talking to Mickey Rourke. Ha!

When you play fight for a living, it must be terrifying to be in a real life beat down. That chick could have killed him, because as far as I could tell, she wasn't play acting. Luckily there wasn't a turnbuckle around, or her head would have been smashed into that big foam ball, causing her to be disoriented to the point where she wouldn't have been able to come to her senses fast enough to avoid his slaps and ear whispers of "I'm going to give you an Irish Whip into the ropes..." What a senseless terrible tragedy for all involved. Of course I'm referring to the events in Darfur, not this video.

So i live in Beautiful Victoria B.C. and I was there! Chris did the right thing, The “fake” blonde was all up in Chris's face. As being from Victoria I want to say I am sorry that Chris had to go through all that and hope that he knows that not all people in Victoria are like that and I hope that he will come back some day.

It's Kinda stupid if you think about. i think that girl was getting in Chris's face because of a storyline on WWE Raw. Most of what they do in WWE in a STORYLINE. it's dumb that she even got in his face. some people take WWE TV too seriously.

While it is mentioned that the female "Fan" appeared to SPIT on Jericho, it is also very clear that she not once but TWICE laid her hands on him. At the 24 second mark you see her hand shove him on the left side of the chest ( while a hand from someone else is patting him on the left shoulder. ) While a female continues to yell "Can I get a picture with you? Can I please get a picture with you?" he's still staring down the Female who shoved him, it appears that he says 'No" & turns to get back into his truck. At this point ( 35/36 second mark ) she shoves him from behind ( it also appears that her left hand may have made contact to his face ) & he turns to defend himself with a swing of his arm. So she laid hands on him not once but TWICE in this video & that's assault on HER part & he has every right ( Considering that it was an unruly mob surrounding his vehicle & the security not doing their job ) to defend himself.

Our local news here in Victoria that covered this sarcastically said "Fan's were
angry that Jericho lost his fight, even though the outcome had been decided
months in advance." Along with a bit of smirk...
