The officer said World Wrestling Entertainment wrestler Heath Slater thought she was pretty and tried to get her up to his room.
She said Slater put her in a chokehold started dragging her inside a downtown Atlanta hotel.
"When he grabbed me I immediately tried to grab his arms back," security officer Corinne Oliver said.
Oliver said it was the worst moment of her life. "And I was saying 'turn me a loose.' He wouldn't turn me loose," she said.
That's when she said the professional wrestler put her in a chokehold.
"I just started fighting with him, trying to get his arm from around my throat," Oliver said.
She said as she struggled to get away, Slater kept "begging me to go to his room with him," Oliver said.
Oliver said she managed to get away and was later able to identify her attacker as popular wrestler Heath Slater.
Oliver said her ordeal took place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta during Wrestlmania last April.
Oliver was working for the security company Allied-Barton. She said it was her job to keep fans away from the wrestlers.
Oliver said Slater attacked her as she walked with him inside the hotel.
