HS Wrestler Expelled For "Butt Drag" Move

The Clovis (CA) Unified School Board has voted unanimously to expel a Buchanan High School senior wrestler who was accused of sexual battery after using a wrestling move deemed to be legal, according to the Fresno Bee.

Attorneys for 17-year old Preston Hill says the move, called the "butt drag" is legitimate. The issue began when Hill practiced the move on a freshman teammate during practice. The maneuver involves inserting one's fingers into an opponent's anus in order to gain leverage.

The father of the unidentified freshman brought sexual battery charges against Hill, whom the father says went too far with the move as retaliation against the boy who stood up to Hill's bullying.  In the meantime, Hill is being home schooled while awaiting a criminal trial, which is scheduled to begin on January 27.

There is a precedent for such a lawsuit. In 2007, then 17-year old Jerome Hunt was found guilty of rape and sentenced to probation after using the move on at least six other wrestlers.
