Police: Gene Hackman slaps a homeless man in NM

<snip>

"This male got up in his face, (and) assaulted (Hackman)," Dobyns said. "Mr. Hackman did slap the homeless male across the face."

Police decided Hackman's slap was in self-defense.

"This homeless male put him in fear for his life and his wife's life," Dobyns said.

The man who was involved in the incident with Hackman has a long, violent history. Court records show he's pleaded guilty in the past to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and battery on a peace officer.

Also, the homeless man looked like Christopher Reeve.

3. Bad. But at least Hackman didn't pull a gun, being "afraid for his life."


I really meant to post to OP, sorry.

2. that is so weird, I didn't know he lived in New Mexico, but the other day I saw someone

and I thought it looked like Gene Hackman, of all people,
and I laughed it off, and then I read this. I'm not in
Santa Fe and don't know if it was just a coincidence and
vague resemblance, or the real person, but it was so
odd to read this just now.

Not that it matters, but.. still. He's a favorite actor, too.

4. yes he lives in Santa Fe

Often he was in the restaurants I was in, with his wife, wanting to be left alone. I was content to nod and not speak.
