Father of Wrestler Actor Gets Ram-Jammed by Iranian Police

As if it weren't bad enough that Mickey Rourke got robbed at the Academy Awards, now comes word that the father of Armin Amiri, an actor who played a bit part in The Wrestler, was arrested by Iranian officials and questioned about his involvement in helping his son defect to the United States some twenty years ago. Thankfully, the father was released without incident, but we're hopeful that Mickey Rourke will retaliate by giving the Iron Sheik a suplex at WrestleMania next month. [NYO via Gawker]
