Will Smith could be arrested for slapping Chris Rock on stage at the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday. He slapped his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, outraged by the joke by the comedian. He also escaped trouble because Chris Rock did not want the officer to take any action.
This was revealed by Will Packer, the producer of the Oscar event. He said the police are “ready” to arrest the Oscar winner.
Will Packer explained in an interview with ABC World News Tonight what happened when the Los Angeles Police Department arrived at the Oscars and officers chatted with Chris Rock. Packer said police informed Rock that what happened was a “battery” and they were “ready to go pick it up now.” The officers also said that Rock could lay charges, and then they could arrest Will Smith.
Oscar producers said police suggested alternatives, but The Rock was rejecting them all. It turned out that Packer had to ask Rock to at least allow the police to clarify his suggestions. The police asked Rock if he wanted them to take any action, and he denied it.
Earlier, the police had issued a statement that they were aware of the incident that one person had slapped another. He said that the person had refused to file a police report, and if the person later decided to do so, they would be ready to investigate.
