So, former pro wrestler Christopher "The Skunk" Antal, who lost a mayoral bid in Massachusetts and pretended to urinate on a Brazilian flag on his cable-access show, was just charged with punching a 59-year-old woman in the face.

Just when you thought all was right with the world.

[He] was released without bail at his arraignment in Marlborough District Court yesterday. Judge Sarah Singer ordered Antal to stay away from the alleged victim.

Antal, in handcuffs and a jacket that said "The Skunk" on the back, did not speak much during his quick arraignment.

Police allege that Antal struck the woman when she tried to break up a fight between Antal and someone else. The woman was taken to Marlborough Hospital with an apparent minor injury, according to court records. [MetroWest Daily News]
