A disturbing story has come out stemming from an alleged incident that occurred back in April at WrestleMania 27. A woman, security officer Corinne Oliver, has accused Heath Slater of assaulting her. Worse still, she says Slater grabbed her and put her in a "choke hold" while begging her to go up to his hotel room with him. has more:

"When he grabbed me I immediately tried to grab his arms back," security officer Corinne Oliver said. Oliver said it was the worst moment of her life. "And I was saying ‘Turn me a loose.' He wouldn't turn me loose," she said. That's when she said the professional wrestler put her in a choke hold. "I just started fighting with him, trying to get his arm from around my throat," Oliver said. She said as she struggled to get away, Slater kept "begging me to go to his room with him," Oliver said. Oliver said she managed to get away and was later able to identify her attacker as Slater.

Oliver was working for Allied-Barton, a security company charged with keeping fans from coming into contact with the wrestlers. According to her, Slater attacked her after she escorted him into the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.

After beginning his WWE career (on television, at least) on NXT and moving on to Raw as a member of the initially popular Nexus, Slater has since bounced around from Raw to Smackdown all the way down to Superstars. He's currently in the midst of a singles run after breaking from Justin Gabriel.

The channel two report has more on its website, including video with an interview with Oliver describing the incident. Head on over and check it out. In the meantime, anyone want to guess how long it will take before he's written off TV and/or fired altogether?
