Arnold Schwarzenegger accused of snubbing body-building fans

Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger has been accused of snubbing body-building fans who waited hours to see their idol at a convention named after the movie star.

The former Mr Universe was in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend for the Arnold Sports Festival 2008. But fans complained that he didn't have any time time for them.

The New York Post reports: "As Schwarzenegger was exiting the Hyatt [hotel] early Sunday morning, he had several goons run ahead of him screaming at hotel customers trying to get to the airport, 'Get back against the wall! Stay against the wall! Do not move!'

"When Schwarzenegger appeared, flanked by men in black suits, one fan broke free and begged for a photo, saying, 'Every year I try and get a picture, please? You're my idol.'

"Schwarzenegger didn't even make eye contact as he swept by."

The festival - also known as the Arnold Classic - is considered the most lucrative competition in bodybuilding.

Schwarzenegger, 60, is now the governor of California. He was unavailable for comment today.
