The suit claimed he was 'aggressively approached and detained by stadium security' - but doesn't say why.
The guards handed him over to Harts personal bodyguards, who brutally beat him, he claimed.¬†
He accused Hart's team of threatening to tase him and then jammed the prongs of the tazer into his face, neck and back.
After that he says ¬†they threw him to the ground before striking him in the head, neck and shoulders, and kneeing him in the rib cage.
