Ex-WWE star 2 Cold Scorpio has been arrested in connection with the stabbing at a gas station in Missouri, as relayed by multiple news outlets. He claimed self-defense as the stabbing allegedly happened as the result of a fight.

Charles Scaggs is the wrestler's real name and he now works as a security guard at the Love's Travel Stop in Kansas City, where the incident occurred. He told police told "he observed a man lighting up a cigarette inside the store and confronted him at 3:40 a.m on June 15, according to TMZ," wrote the New York Post. "Scaggs told police the man grew angry and yelled at him, 'F you the f-k you gonna do?'"

Scaggs added that the man threatened and the two decided to take their beef outside, per the report. That is when Scaggs allegedly took out a pocket knife and stabbed the victim several times.

Police said they discovered the alleged victim "bleeding from his head, chest, buttocks, legs and abdomen," per TMZ.

Per the New York Post:

"At the hospital, the man told police that it was Scaggs who started the fight. Scaggs was charged with two felony counts — first-degree assault and armed criminal action — and pled not guilty. His next court date is in July."

Post Wrestling added further details on the alleged incident: "The victim stated he entered the store to withdraw money from the ATM and was confronted by Scaggs as he was exiting about smoking inside. The victim said he pushed Scaggs away when he got too close and claimed that Scaggs attacked the unarmed victim, who began to defend himself."
