Gene Hackman Slapped a Homeless Man Who Called His Wife Names
GENE HACKMAN slapped a homeless man who threatened him and cursed at his wife.
It happened yesterday afternoon outside a restaurant in Santa Fe, New Mexico, as Gene and his wife were leaving.
The man reportedly approached them in a threatening manner, then unleashed the profanity. Hackman slapped the guy across the face, and the guy called the cops.
He's homeless but he's got a cell phone. This isn't really that uncommon, actually. Puzzling, yes. But not uncommon.
Police interviewed Gene and his wife, but they decided the smack was in self-defense, so no charges were filed.
