BEAVER CITY, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska dad has been found guilty of misdemeanor assault for attacking a 17-year-old wrestler who defeated his son during a tournament in Cambridge in February.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/2hkS7Wb ) 41-year-old Stacey Micheel pleaded no contest to the charge last week as part of a deal with prosecutors. Originally, the Ainsworth man had been charged with felony child abuse.

Prosecutors say Micheel grabbed an Amherst High School wrestler by the neck and slammed him to the ground. Micheel told investigators that the teen made a disparaging remark about pinning his son.

Micheel could face up to one year in jail when he’s sentenced on Feb. 9.
