Clearly this is a hate crime. Oh wait, the perp who brutally pummels a white girl is black?
Oh, never mind.
It seemed to come out of nowhere. In the midst of a tight South Carolina girls soccer match between two area rivals, a player fell after a seemingly innocuous foul. While most anticipated that she would calmly restart play, what she did instead has sparked a criminal investigation.
The player who is now the subject of local law enforcement is Lewisville (S.C.) High senior Annette McCullough, who brutally attacked an unnamed Chester (S.C.) High opponent during a Monday match. While there is no video showcasing prior incidents between the two players, McCullough reacted viciously to a small trip that sent her tumbling to the ground.
The attack, which you can see above, featured hair pulling, punches being rained down on the Chester player — Carolinas CBS affiliate WBTV counted 11 different punches — and a frantic attempt to halt the attack before it reached even more dangerous levels.
Fittingly, McCullough was immediately sent off with a red card, escorted away from the field with the aid of an assistant referee. Shortly thereafter Chester County deputies were called to the scene and McCullough — who is 18 years old — was charged with simple assault.
Simple assault? Judge for yourself. Looks a lot worse than that. But I guess maybe we just don’t under her rage or something.
