According to TMZ Sports, WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil is being sued for an alleged 2015 incident. He reportedly “flipped out and attacked a WWE cameraman” after a prank that went wrong.

The prank was supposed to be used for “Swerved,” a YouTube show. Donald Anderson, the photographer, said he was hired for the show that also aired on the WWE Network.

On the show, it features WWE superstars being pranked by fellow superstars and staffers.

In Anderson’s lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and also obtained by TMZ Sports, he said that they were shooting the YouTube show on May 18, 2015 when O’Neil was selected as the target. As a part of the prank, he was going to receive an electric shock.

Instead of O’Neil taking it “in good fun,” he allegedly lost his mind, according to the lawsuit. He also allegedly kicked the camera out of Anderson’s hands, the lawsuit alleges.

Anderson also alleges that he was “seriously injured” in the attack. He says that he “suffered major damage to his hand, fingers and wrist.” He alleges that he was told to “leave the premises immediately in fear of the possibility of further attacks by Titus.”

The lawsuit is for $1.2 million in damages. TMZ Sports attempted to reach out to O’Neil; however, they did not receive comment from him or his representatives by the time of the post.
