‘Tarzan’ said “For those who are wondering how I almost killed a man. I am at this gathering and I am probably running my mouth being an idiot. Next thing I know, this guy f***ing puts a shotgun onto my head. So my dumb a** punches him in the face. He falls down I take the gun and at that moment I am contemplating if I shoot this mot*****ker in the head is there any legal defense to it.”

But there is no legal defense on f**king shooting an unarmed man on his f**king knees begging for his life. I wish I could have but I would have went to prison.”
