Okay, so it wasn’t just dancing naked in front of the embarrassed 9th grader: they also touched him with their genitals and tried to stick their junk in his face a couple of times. Who hasn’t done that though in the locker room at the YMCA, right? (Thanks to long time reader Artie Bigley for the link!)
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.
Texting is fast becoming a common feature of the stories on this site (remember when it used to be MySpace?), which is rather surprising since it leaves a trail in addition to evidence that can be used by the prosecution. Such minute details are lost on those in the sports world, as is evident in the latest scandal involving a junior high head wrestling coach.
Steve Oswald took a fancy to the team’s 14yo manager & started sending her texts. In a 2 week span, he sent “several hundred texts” (see there boys girls, again: texting leaves evidence). Naturally, some of those texts were of the sexual nature but Oswald is a also a fan of marijuana and mentioned it often, which lead to the charge of “corruption of a minor” (*cough cough* evidence). Throw in some underwear talk & inappropriate touching and it just gets worse …
BerksMont News has the details:
The girl said that on one occasion Oswald asked her what kind of underwear she was wearing and stated in a text “you know you love me.” On another occasion, Oswald came up to the girl while she was doing stretches on a wrestling mat and told her to close her legs because the underwear she was wearing was not “ladylike.”
During a wrestling meet, Oswald allegedly walked up behind the girl and put his hands on her shoulders and began massaging her shoulders. In one instance, Oswald said to the girl “if you were 10 years older and I was 10 years younger, we could hang out and smoke weed. We would smoke pot all day and not have any worries in the world.”
