Dad Attacks Son’s Opponent After Illegal Slam
According to a Kannapolis Police Department news release obtained by FOX 8 news, after Jones’ son was illegally slammed in that high school wrestling match, the father rushed the Southeast Guilford High School student-athlete. The official’s hand signals indicate the move as illegal and awards points as a result. The slam didn’t appear to injure the HRHS student, either, as he quickly gets in position for a restart.
That, however, didn’t stop this deranged parent from tackling his son’s opponent — remember, this was a 17-year-old high school kid — with every bit of force he had. Parents and high school wrestling coaches immediately swarm the mat as an all-out brawl ensues.
