BEAVER CITY, Neb. (AP) — A Dunning man has been accused of attacking a wrestler who he said was deriding the man’s son after defeating him in a match.

Online court records say 40-year-old Stacey Micheel was arrested Saturday during a wrestling meet at Cambridge Public Schools in Cambridge. Micheel is charged with felony intentional child abuse. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on Micheel’s behalf.

An arrest warrant affidavit says Micheel told a Furnas County deputy that the wrestler was “talking crap” about Micheel’s son.

Micheel says he pushed the wrestler. The affidavit says a security video shows Micheel grabbing the 17-year-old by the neck and pushing him down.
