Randy Orton posted the following message on his website about the alleged incident that took place after the Boston show at Kowloon’s restaurant:
“Here’s what happened: I walked out of Kowloon’s Friday night around 12:30-1 a.m. with Santino and a police officer escort. As I was being rudely hounded for pictures and autos (I had a 6:40 a.m. flight through Minni to Lincoln, then a drive to Omaha, a match, a drive back to Omaha, then a charter to Minni, and a driver to Rochester for the next show the next day, btw), I was confronted by an older women who said: ‘Hey Randy, you spit on my handicapped son a few years ago at a show, what do you have to say about that?’ My replay...`So Sue me.’ Then I proceeded to my car, with Santino and the cop and drove back to our hotel by the Boston airport. I know I have been a bit of a hothead in the past, but I DID NOT spit gum and call names to any child. The women is claiming I called her son a `retard’ 3 times, and spit gum in his face. Come on people, even at my worst temperament, I would never call a handicapped child something awful like that. I’ll actually sign anything for any child with any disability. I heard just today from WWE attorneys that this women filed assault charges against me 4 days later? Hmmm, oh, and what about the dozens of cops at the restaurant that were there for crowd control since there were over 100 wrestling fans there? Not to mention the cop that escorted me to my freaking car. I’ll be happy when this is over. I guess if I’ve learned anything from this, it is not to ever challenge anyone to sue me.”
I tend to agree with you freak, however since he is the adult and I don't really have any proof either way, I'm going to give Orton the benefit of the doubt. I realize his past is not what one would call desirable, and no one will disagree. At the same time, possibly the same way you don't think he's innocent, I don't think he's guilty. Granted, this is the US where you are innocent until proven guilty, so maybe thats what is getting me. However, if he is guilty I've got no problem admitting I'm wrong and will do so.
Well, looks like what I speculated when I first posted this story ended up being the case
TMZ.com reported Saturday that WWE Superstar Randy Orton has been cleared regarding an incident in which he allegedly spit on a fifteen-year-old boy.
A document filed in a Massachusetts court confirmed that the case was dismissed due to lack of probable cause.
According to police reports at the time of the incident, Orton allegedly responded to a young male fan's request for a photograph with a dose of saliva and some name calling. The claim continued that Orton responded to a complaint from the boy's mother with, "so sue me."
Ultimately, however, the court ruled that there was no probable cause to move forward with the charge
