‘Challenge’ star Nelson Thomas seems to have bitten off more than he can chew recently. This is because the former star got knocked out cold by a furious husband after he hit on the man’s wife in Las Vegas.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ, it was said that Nelson Thomas met a woman at ARIA Resort & Casino and started talking to her at the valet area. Right after that, he was knocked out and Nelson found himself being woken up by someone who told him he was punched in the face and had his necklace stolen.
Police officers state that they also saw a video that backed up the witness account. The video showed Nelson talking to the woman before the punch dropped him to the ground. The man also punched him one more time for good measure.
Nelson Thomas said that he was “sucker-punched” and left with a broken nose so swollen he was not able to receive treatment by a doctor until the swelling reduced. Thomas took to social media and stated that he was attacked because someone was trying to steal his $10,000 chain.
According to the police report, the woman’s husband, Kevin Dixon, said Nelson was talking to his wife in an elevator. However, when Dixon left the elevator, his wife was still speaking to Nelson. Dixon was said to have lost sight of her and was trying to text and call her, then found her at valet talking to Nelson.
As revealed by police officers, Dixon admitted he was being jealous, angry and intoxicated. Dixon was arrested for battery and grand larceny. On the other hand, Nelson Thomas’ nose is finally better after getting treatment.
