Fresno-Area High School Wrestler’s Sexual Battery Charge Dropped

CLOVIS (AP) – Prosecutors have dropped the sexual battery charge against a California high school wrestler who claimed he was just executing a common wrestling move.

The teenager had faced the charge for allegedly ramming his fingers into the rectum of his teammate.

But defense lawyer Stephen Quade said his 17-year-old client had used a legitimate wrestling move called the “butt drag” during the July practice match.

The Fresno Bee reports that the charge was dropped Wednesday at a court hearing as part of a mediation agreement between the Clovis teen and the accuser.

The Associated Press is not naming the defendant because he is a minor.

He was expelled from the school in January, after officials concluded the teen had sexually assaulted his teammate.

    Perhaps instead of chaulk beside the mats they should have tubes of lube for this move.
