Taking to Twitter, Schwarzenegger thanked everyone for their concerns and appeared to be OK.
“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat,” – Arnold tweeted.
