Did Steven Seagal poop himself on the set of Out for Justice after getting choked out?

If you are or were a fan of Steven Segal at some point, you probably know the legendary story that he soiled himself while on the set of 1991's Out for Justice. Long story short, SS said that due to his Aikido training he could not be choked out. "Judo" Gene LeBell, uncredited stunt man and American Judo master, challenged Seagal. Seagal, of course, was choked out and, according to the story, he pooped and peed his pants.

Everyone on the cast was reportedly issued a gag order. Until yesterday. Gene, during The MMA Hour by Ariel Helwani, was asked about the incident. LeBell responded:

Well, if a guy soils himself, you can’t criticize him, because if they just had a nice big dinner an hour before, you might have a tendency to do that.

Confirmation? No. Gene stated what would be a fact if someone had indeed eaten a lot prior to the demo. Gene also dropped a few more lines on SS:

Steven Seagal is a very outstanding martial artist. I’ve got nothing against Steven. Personally, myself I don’t think he’s taught these mixed martial artists how to win a match…He’s done a lot for martial arts, but I know where he’s insulted Randy Couture. Well, Randy Couture if he ever got mad, would have him for lunch. And that isn’t to put down Steven, but ‘closed mouth don’t catch any foot. In other words, you can’t put your foot in you mouth if you keep it closed.

So classy LeBell stated his opinion and never confirmed or denied anything about the rumor.

Update: Stuntman Steven Lambert says the event actually took place during 'Marked for Death' filming. 

Here's his take.
