Today’s Badass: Gene Hackman Smacks Angry Homeless Man

Gene Hackman retired from acting in 2004, but not from being a badass. According to TMZ, a homeless man “Target“-ed Hackman and his “Lucky Lady” Betsy the other day when he approached them menacingly outside of a restaurant in the actor’s current hometown of Sante Fe, New Mexico. Immediately the 63-year-old homeless man became “Under Suspicion,” a potential “Loose Cannon.” Not to be “Misunderstood,” the man called Hackman’s wife a c***. “The Conversation” didn’t last very long after that, as Hackman displayed his “Absolute Power” by putting the man “Under Fire” with a pimp slap (or Hack-slap) to the face. Maybe the man had “A Covenant With Death.”

Sergeant Andrea Dobyns told Albuquerque ABC affiliate KOAT-TV, “Our officers got a call from a homeless male who said he’s just been beat up by Gene Hackman. This male got up in his face, assaulted him.” Police determined Hackman was acting in self-defense and thus will not be charged. Becker has a long rap sheet and is now not only an “Enemy of the State” but an enemy of Gene Hackman. Mr. Becker, you are … “Unforgiven.”
