Unfortunately for 19 yo Harold Delancy, the lines between real-life sports & TV entertainment got blurred (blame reality TV) and he allegedly struck a 16yo opponent in the head with a chair. Why did all this go down? Because he lost a match and nothing says “good sportsmanship” like a temper tantrum, does it?
Star Tribune has the details:
Harold Delancy, 19, faces two counts of disorderly conduct after he allegedly struck a 16-year-old wrestler from Oregon in the head with a chair at the Clash wrestling tournament at the University Center Rochester Regional Sports Center. The Post-Bulletin reported that Delancy, a heavyweight, lost a match, then began throwing and kicking chairs that were arranged next to the mat. The victim was seated next to the mat and allegedly was struck with the legs of a chair that Delancy was holding, suffering a concussion.
