“Pretty Little Liar’s” Brant Daugherty is facing some formidable opponents on “Dancing with the Stars,” but none as dangerous as the one he encountered after last week’s show.
“I was robbed at gunpoint right outside of my apartment building last Monday, actually after the show,” he told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson following this week’s show.
”[I was] walking up to the courtyard of my building, a man came by me with a gun,” he explained. “He said, ‘Give me the bags’… and then he showed me his gun and told me he would shoot me if I didn’t give him the bags.”
“I’m speechless,” Shaun said.
“I was speechless too. Honestly, I still don’t know what to say about it,” he continued.
Unfortunately, the man was not caught.
“He got away,” he said, explaining that he called the police right after the incident.
The 28-year-old said the incident affected his work in the ballroom.
“It got my head out of the game, it was a distraction and I was really trying to focus but it was an overwhelming time,” he told Shaun.
On the bright side, the contents of Brant’s bag were probably not what the man was expecting.
”[Inside was] my Latin dance shoes, that was honestly the most expensive thing in the bag,” he said. “I would love to see the look on his face when he opened the bag up, expecting I don’t know what, jewels and riches.”
