William Shatner arrived at Comic-Con last week in a wheelchair, sparking rumors online as to what exactly befell the 83-year-old "Star Trek" actor.

It turns out Shatner was injured by a horse last weekend.

"I was riding a horse and had an accident," he told the crowd at Comic-Con's "Legends of TV Land" panel in San Diego on Thursday. "The horse got off scot-free. I did not. I wrecked my leg."

Despite his injury, though, Shatner said he knew he could not miss Comic-Con.

"I was not going to [miss it]," he said. "In a couple of days I'll be fine, but right now I'm in a lot of pain."

Shatner also made headlines this week for his rant about Facebook's new Mentions app for celebrities.

The first big flaw the actor found with the feature is that it dictates which celebrities to follow. Shatner reportedly found this not only redundant, but also insulting after the app suggested he follow long-time frenemy George Takei — his old colleague from the "Star Trek" days.

"If this app is for celebrities then WHY force them to follow another celebrity in order to set up this app? I think that is a flaw; I’m already following those who I want to follow. ... The first person on the list I was given was George Takei (rolling my eyes.) I ended up choosing Robert Downey Jr. to follow and then I hid his posts (sorry Robert!)."
