Peoria Civic Center issues statement on Scarlett WWE house show fan incident

Scarlett had a drink thrown at her during Saturday night's event in Peoria, Illinois.

The Peoria Civic Center has responded to a fan incident that happened at a WWE house show over the weekend.

The incident took place during a match where Karrion Kross faced Drew McIntyre at WWE's house show in Peoria, Illinois on November 12. While Scarlett was at ringside, a fan threw a drink at her. The woman who threw the drink, along with what appeared to be members of their family, were escorted out by security and police.

The Peoria Civic Center commented on the incident through a statement that was released to WMBD News in Peoria. The arena's director of sales and marketing said:

We are aware of the incident that took place at the WWE event on Saturday, November 12. Fortunately, our Peoria Civic Center security team along with the Peoria Police quickly identified the individuals responsible and escorted them out of the building for the remainder of the show. While we were disappointed in the actions of a couple and the brief distraction they caused, over 4,000 enthusiastic WWE fans were treated to a very entertaining event.

Peoria Police told WMBD News that no charges were filed and no arrests were made.

Scarlett also commented on the incident via a tweet that she posted on Saturday night.

"As a classy woman from Chicago, I’m not surprised that something like this would happen in Peoria," Scarlett wrote. "PS. To the granny who threw the drink, your booze was as cheap as your hairdo."
