American soccer ace and wrestler banned after being charged with assault for violent assault on referee (VIDEO) — RT Sport Information

An aspiring American football star hoping to become a top wrestler was banned for a season over a vicious attack that worried a referee who fired him – and the police who took him out charged him with assault.

Texas high school prodigy Emmanuel Duron stormed back onto the field after being dismissed earlier this month following Edinburg High School’s win over Pharr-San Juan-Alamo and knocking referee Fred Garcia to the ground before hitting him was led away by shocked players and coaches.

Garcia sustained a shoulder injury and did not return to the game for fear of concussions while police escorted the embarrassed Duron off the scene, charged him with assault in a local court, and asked for $ 10,000 bail for his release.

The kicker and punter, who won a district Defensive Player of the Year award last year, now has his athletic ambitions in tatters after being suspended from all track and field athletes for the remainder of the school year.

At least that was the right punishment … that wanker makes a statement and doesn’t apologize to the umpire he shot cheaply. Hope the umpire pushes hard, a punk-ass kid like this takes the hard hit lesson.

The verdict could also affect the school and head football coach JJ Leija, who have been placed on long-term probation.

After receiving a previous sentence, Duron was punished for unsportsmanlike conduct for allegedly saying something unpleasant to Garcia before frantically returning to the field to bring the defenseless officer to the ground.

Edinburgh won 35-21 but their promotion to the play-offs ended after they were eliminated from the competition due to the attack viewed online more than a million times.

He didn’t even apologize to the referee or his teammates. What a bastard

Goodbye, any chance of a scholarship. Control, brother.

If he had a scholarship, he could kiss them away too.

In a brief statement, Duron said, “I want to say that I am sorry for what happened to my coaches, my family and the university’s Interscholastic League.”

The apology was largely ridiculed on social media. “At least that was the right punishment,” said a US sports fan.

“That wanker makes a statement and doesn’t apologize to the umpire he shot cheaply. I hope the umpire presses hard on the court; a punk-ass kid like this needs the hard punch lesson.”

They knew what kind of player they had and they let them. It’s just a shame the team suffered for their stupid mistake.

Another thundered: “He didn’t even apologize to the referee or his teammates. What a bastard.”

Edinburgh CISD interim superintendent Gilbert Garza has been described as “very unhappy” for the team following the unanimous decision on the suspension.

“The leadership of our district also agrees with the committee that such incidents are unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” he said.

“In the future, our district will strive to develop and implement an action plan to proactively prevent future misconduct by future athletes.”
