Annette McCullough, High School Soccer Player, Charged With Assault After On-Field Fight

by at . Comments

Lewisville (S.C.) High School senior Annette McCullough became the subject of criminal investigation after she brutally attacked a Chester (S.C.) High opponent.

During the game.

It seemed to come out of nowhere. In the midst of a tightly-fought girls soccer match, McCullough fell after a seemingly innocuous foul ... and absolutely lost it:

There is no video showcasing prior incidents between these two players, yet McCullough reacted viciously to a relatively minor trip that sent her to the ground.

The attack, which you can see above, featured hair pulling, punches being rained down on the Chester player before the melee was broken up.

Not just one or two of them, either. She went Jenelle Evans on her.

Annette McCullough was immediately sent off with a red card and escorted away from the field. Chester County deputies were called to the scene.

McCullough, 18, was charged with simple assault.

Alan Parker, referee of the match, made clear that this invoked a sense of violence that made it much more troubling than other soccer skirmishes.

"Some incidental contact ended in one girl going down and she just got up and started pummeling," Parker told WBTV. "It's unfortunate, it really is."

"Contact is a part of soccer, but when you retaliate like that, obviously, there is no place in the game for that. Occasionally you have players that go at it."

"In this case, though, it was just one girl pummeling the other girl. And not just for a moment, she didn't stop which is even more egregious."

no this is not a hate crime, but with that being said.... if the black girl got the sh*t beat out of her by the white girl, every black person in the united states of america would be screaming hate crime! just speaking the truth

Ms. McCullough should receive whatever the law allows based on what she did. When you compete there is a thing clld sportsmanship, you don't attack someone like this, she should be ready to take responsibility for her actions.

give the girl a break. the game got too emotional for her to handle. She is only 18. the other girl had minor injuries. So, hit 11 times, but still not hurt. those were just slaps. Should she play soccer again? No. Should she get counselling? Yes. But don't ruin her life by treating this as criminal or racial. Did you notice that most of her team mates were white? This was just a school game that got out of hand.

I actually go to the school. I didn't find out about this until one of my friends told me about it right when school let out. I don't know the girl, but I thought that was messed up. Yeah Chester and Lewisville are rivals but this is ridiculous. Looks like the Senior Class of 2012 will be a student short during Graduation. Normally, nobody at the school acts like this during a game
