Mario Lopez was attacked by an over-aggressive gym rat after a Las Vegas workout, and we have a pic of the action as it went down.
Sources on scene at the Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandera tell The Blast Lopez was finishing up a workout Friday when he bumped into a guy while leaving the bathroom, and things got heated quickly.
We’re told the man went erratic and accused Lopez of a deliberate bump, screaming “why did you push me?!” Lopez was trying to explain the misunderstanding when nearby security jumped in and separated the two. But, not before the man was able to grab the “EXTRA” host’s phone and smash it into smithereens.
The Blast also obtained a photo of the man as he was pinned to the ground while security waited for cops to arrive. We know it’s blurry, but that’s how everything looks after a night in Vegas.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department tells us when they showed up Lopez declined to press any charge so no arrests were made. We’re told cops actually called the actor back later in the evening to make sure he did not want to pursue charges, and he once again declined.
Planet Hollywood wasn’t so lenient, and the suspect was banned for life from the hotel and casino after they discovered he’s been a problem for them multiple times in the past.
As for the phone that Lopez actually bought earlier that day at the Vegas Apple Store, Planet Hollywood immediately plunked down $1,200 and replaced the phone, and threw in some fancy accessories.
Sources close to Lopez tell The Blast he thinks it’s “hilarious” his phone ended up getting beat up in Vegas on the weekend of the big GGG vs. Canelo fight.
