Independent wrestler Isaac Lancaster, Jr., 23, was arrested on Thursday and arraigned on Friday in Washington County, Pennsylvania court on charges that include aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and additional charges. He was was picked up on a warrant stemming from the New Year's Eve incident and was later released under a $10,000 unsecured bond.

The charges stem from when the former independent wrestler, who worked as Kid Lighting, allegedly put a woman in a submission hold and later struck a fighting pose and charged at police once they arrived. Police officials eventually used a stun gun to subdue him. Read more on the story at [Thanks to Dot Net reader Felix for passing along the story]

Powell's POV: Lancaster has apologized for his actions and said he doesn't remember most of the incident, because he was intoxicated. He stated that he quit wrestling on the Kid Lighting name over a year ago. New Year's Eve is called amateur night for a reason, folks.
