A very unusual story for us. Not only because these jocks did some thing Good, instead of something Bad, but also because it involves female wrestlers on a college team! We think their story deserves a little more attention:
Two Oklahoma City University wrestlers are being hailed as heroes after tackling a man who had fled the scene of an accident. But what makes this story unusual is that the wrestlers are girls, not boys. 19 year old Breiana Delgado and her sister, 21 year old Brittany Delgado, both wrestle for the women’s wrestling team at OCU.
They had a chance to put their moves to the test Saturday afternoon when a man smashed into their car. They were riding with their grandmother, Elizabeth Bell. It happened while they were driving north on Pennsylvania near N.W. 26th. The force of the crash sent their car straight into a stop sign, knocking down the pole. ”We were all checking on nana to make sure she’s ok. And as soon as we got her situated, nana’s like, hey he’s running away, he’s running away!” said Brittany.
Breiana started chasing the man, overtook him and tackled him to the ground, using a wrestling move called the double chicken wing. Brittany was not far behind. She helped Breiana stand the man up, while holding his hands behind his back, and leading him back to the car, as if they had arrested him. They held him there until police arrived. ”He kind of had this bewildered look on his face as we were taking him back to his car telling him hey that wasn’t cool, you shouldn’t have done that,” said Brittany. “They didn’t realize they were two champion wrestlers,” said Bell.
Doing this site for more than ten years makes you think that you’ve heard it all and seen it all. And then you have a day like today and you can’t believe what you’re reading. According to police, Tyler J. Wilfley, a wrestler at North Central College (IL) has already had some run-ins with the law, most notably a minor in possession charge last fall where his blood alcohol level registered a whopping .141 %. No record, but not bad for a college kid. Then, this past month, a campus cop received a call at 2 am to escort a young woman across campus and was asked to meet her at a parking garage. When he showed up, there was no girl, but he did get greeted by several condoms . . . filled with vomit. Seriously, who thinks of sh*t like this?
Eventually the cops tracked down the cell number of the “female student” and it led them to Wilfley who is now charged with battery and disorderly conduct. At right, the mug shot of young Tyler J. Wilfley.
Police said the security officer did not see the female student when he arrived. When he got out of his vehicle to look around for the woman, at least two vomit-filled condoms were thrown at him, police said. The contents of the condoms struck the officer’s vehicle and got on the officer’s clothes, police said.
Sgt. Gregg Bell said investigators traced the number of the phone the female student used back to a male North Central College student, who implicated Wilfley, who comes from Downs, a town about five miles southeast of Bloomington. According to the college’s website, Wilfley is a member of the college’s wrestling team who notched an 8-4 record with one pin in the 165-pound weight class this year.
