6 p.m.: Apologies for the delay in live results due to the breaking news. We will now be updating them beginning with Girls 97.
A high school athlete was arrested after allegedly threatening a referee and grabbing his shirt and then pushing down a security guard at the Texaco/HHSAA Wrestling State Championships at Blaisdell Area on Friday.
Here is the complete story from Star-Advertiser.com.
According to witnesses, a wrestler was upset about losing a match due to penalties assessed by officials, and while other matches were going on, he approached the referee, grabbing his shirt and threatening him. The incident caused a commotion in the arena and temporarily stopped all matches going on the six mats.
A security guard tried to break up the mini mob scene and after a group of his agitated friends and family moved from one mat to another, the security guard was thrown down by the wrestler. He and his friends and family, who were loudly yelling words of support for the wrestler, were escorted out of the arena by HHSAA officials, but that process took about five minutes.
During the disturbance, another man, using a cane, was heard saying, “I’ll put you down with one leg.” It wasn’t clear who he was speaking to.
We have had to temporarily halt action as an incident broke out on the center mat. Multiple adults came storming in from the crowd and a wrestler came out and shoved an official to the mat. Ugly incident.
