Fan bodyslammed by Ohio State coach after rushing field fined ... $100?

New, 3 comments

All things considered, it seems like the body slam Anthony Wunder endured after rushing the field at Ohio State was the worst thing that happened to him.

After Anthony Wunder rushed the field during the Ohio State/Cincinnati game, only to be body slammed by Ohio State coach Anthony Schlegel in front of over 100,000 people, many assumed that the student would find himself in huge trouble, including the possible loss of his Evans Scholars scohlarship  at Ohio State. Now, the situation appears resolved, and all things considered, things could have gone a lot worse.

Per the Columbus Dispatch, Wunder pled guilty to criminal trespassing this morning. Judge H. William Pollitt Jr ordered Wunder to pay the court fees and a $100 fine. Criminal trespassing is a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

Wunder has been suspended from all activities involved with the Evans Scholars, a scholarship program for caddies, but has at least not yet lost his scholarship. Wunder is a fourth-year student and only has a year to go to finish his mechanical engineering degree. There's no word at this time whether or not Wunder himself will pursue legal action towards Schlegel for the force used in his detaining of the student.

So Wunder leaves with his pride and his wallet dinged, but may still get to finish his education. Hopefully, this isn't a mistake anybody else makes in the future.
