WWE wrestler, TMNT movie actor, arrested for attacking teen
According to police reports acquired by TMZ, Nash was arrested after a bloody altercation with his teenage son.
According to the report, Nash told officers that his son, Tristan, came to the house drunk and belligerent. Tristan Nash allegedly attacked his father and step-mother, at which time Kevin Nash pinned his son to the ground.
During the altercation, Kevin Nash’s face was scratched badly enough to cause blood stains on his face in a mugshot photo.
When officers arrived, Tristan Nash told them that his dad slammed him violently to the ground, causing him to black out. Kevin Nash was then arrested for the assault.
Just a few hours later Tristan Nash was arrested for allegedly attacking his mother in her home in a separate incident.
Both Nash’s were held at the jail overnight Chirstmas Eve with no bond.
Kevin Nash was born in Detroit and graduated from the now-defunct Aquinas High School in Southgate.
After High School, he attended the University of Tennessee to play basketball.
Eventually after a professional basketball career in Europe was cut short by injury, he returned to the Detroit area and worked at Ford Motor Co. before becoming a professional wrestler.
Kevin Nash has also had a mildly successful movie career, with parts in several big-budget films including "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze,” “Magic Mike,” “John Wick,” “The Longest Yard,” “Rock of Ages,” and other smaller film and TV roles.
