UPDATE: In an update to our earlier report, the man who was arrested for attacking Bret Hart during Saturday night’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony was still in jail on Monday. He may remain in jail until his hearing takes place at the end of this week.
Zachary Madsen is currently behind held at Brooklyn Detention Complex, as no one has paid his $750 bail or $1,500 bond to get him released.
For what it’s worth, Madsen has been provided a public defender and is set for a hearing in his case this coming Friday (unless he’s bailed/bonded out before then). He has been charged with two counts of assault and trespassing.
There is no word on how he gave a statement to ABC News earlier today unless he called them from jail, which is very possible.
