The Real Life 127 Hours Guy Is In New Drama Of His Own

What relevance does this have to fitness and supplements…well none I suppose, except through association because Aron Ralston is the original adventurer from the hit film 127 Hours! This incredible story saw him, an avid adventurer, getting stuck down a creek in the Grand Canyon. This led to him being trapped for 5 days eventually resulting in him sawing off his own arm in desperation to avoid starving and dehydrating. Well, it seems Ralston has a new drama of his own, turns out him and his partner Vita Shannon had an altercation one evening which saw her press charges which Ralston was quickly cleared of. The two have a daughter together (which makes this pretty sad really), but this didn’t stop Shannon from apparently ‘punching’ him in the back of the head during a domestic. The irony of all this, Shannon was a Harvard student…in hindsight, not too clever really was it! Shannon was later cleared because Ralston failed to turn up at court to testify against her. Case of handbags…probably!
