Independent wrestler Kreepy the Clown, real name Michael R. Keihn, Sr, was arrested after assaulting a fan following an Indiana Powerhouse Wrestling event.
According to a report from FOX 59, Michael R. Keihn, Sr. was arrested on Tuesday after a live event in Muncie, Indiana. Court documents reveal that a 34 year-old autistic fan was attending the wrestling show with his caretaker and was being “loud and boisterous.” Due to this, “some persons in the area next to him got angry.” Following the show, Keihn allegedly attacked the fan while leaving the building by elbowing him in the back of the head. He reportedly said, “You wanna call someone a b*tch, call me a b*tch!”
The elbow led to the fan hitting Keihn in the face with a soda can. The fan’s caretaker tried to intervene but was blocked by several others who were in the vicinity of the area. The caretaker reportedly said “let them finish the fight.” At one point, Keihn allegedly stood over the autistic fan and yelled at him to not call “my son a fa***t, you re***d.” A witness told Keihn to stop and was told to “just leave.”
According to a representative from IPW, Keihn admitted to being involved in the fight and repeatedly said the victim antagonized him. Additionally, the rep says Keihn has been fired from the company.
The victim suffered a broken nose and several cuts across his face and forehead.
Keihn has been charged with one count of battery. If convicted, he faces between one and six years in prison.
