Female High School Soccer Player Charged With Assault After Beating Opponent During Match
On Thursday, we featured a wild brawl between two women in Atlanta. When Friday rolled around, we didn’t think we’d be doing a similar story about a girls high school soccer game. We are — and the video is unbelievable.
During a match in South Carolina, Annette McCullough — a senior at Lewisville High School — was chasing down a ball when she fell down, possibly the result of contact with an unnamed opposing player. That’s when all hell broke lose, as HuffPo explains:
Seeming to believe that her fall was the result of an intentional trip by the defender, McCullough immediately gets up and goes after the opposing player. The video shows the 18-year-old McCullough grab hold of the opponent’s hair with one hand while repeatedly punching her in the face and head until another woman runs over to separate them. [Emphasis added]
And it was all captured on video (video might take several seconds to load):
Chester County Sheriff Richard Smith told Foxnews.com McCullough has been charged with third degree assault.
“It’s an unfortunate thing that happened to the victim and for the school,” Smith said. “We very seldom, if ever, have any trouble at the school.”
The victim received several knots, but no major injuries. That may seem incredible considering WBTV-TV, which first reported the incident, said the victim was punched at least 11 times.
Referees are reviewing the tape for any additional punishment. The school has not said what action has been or will be taken against McCullough.
