Girls high school soccer player drags opponent by hair, punches her 11 times (video)

Mar 29, 2012, 7:07 PM EDT


Suddenly the exploits of New Mexico’s Elizabeth Lambert seem like child’s play. An 18-year-old player from Lewisville High School in South Carolina took exception to being tripped during a soccer game, dragging her opponent to the ground by the hair and pummeling her. The attack was only stopped when spectators and a referee ran up and pulled the two apart.

Annette McCullough, 18, dragged the victim to the ground by her hair before punching her 11 times in the head and upper body as the girl curls up to protect herself. The attack happened during a soccer match between Chester High School and Lewisville High School on Monday.


More here.

Chester County Sheriff Richard Smith told WBTV that deputies were called to Lewisville High School to the report of an assault. McCullough is being charged with simple assault, according to the incident report from the Sheriff’s Office.

Referees will review the video with the South Carolina High School League to see if any punishments will be handed down.

    Way to help her out teammates. Especially the first one who just ran over and did nothing.

    Where is all the outrage for this? She ought to be in jail.

      The police responded and the girl was charged. There’s nothing to get upset about when the process works; it’s when the process doesn’t work that we need to make noise.

    We know the drill. National left wing media will ignore this. If the white girl was punching the black girl it would be on the cover of the New York Times, the tv talking heads would be on this 24/7 and idiot celebrities would be holding fund raisers for the black girls college fund…..Oh yeah , Spike Lee would be tweeting the white girls home address too.

      Sadly, you are exactly right.

      Really? I’m watching this courtesy of MSNBC… I think they ARE the national left wing media, aren’t they?

      We don’t need your dog-whistles here.

      It’s a shame but you are right…but then again you have to consider the fact that only 50 some years ago white people were hanging black people down in the south and not getting punished for it. So I can understand black people having to call out any mistreatment of each other in order to make sure that “that Amercia” never comes back. Besides, all of the bigots will chime in for the white girl…she will receive plenty of ”support”.
      In the end it was two teenagers…one with anger issues and one who needs to learn karate.

        Your +1 is in the mail.

        The wrongs of the past are no excuse for the present. If we cannot learn to forgive for the past, work through the present, we will have no future togther. Without a future together, we have no future.

        Alot of folks are tired of the past being brought up. It can’t be changed, only made sure we move on and don’t repeat it.

        You do know that blacks have died at the hands of another black like a thousand times more than all the lynchings and KKK murders since the 1800s combined right? There was an actual study on this done a few years back.

        Blacks make up 15% of the US population. They make up 43% of the murders. 93% murdered by another black. Wheres Sharpton and Jesse talking about these??? They are right about one thing, blacks are under attack. But not by the whites, but by their own people.

        But I’m sure I’m a bigot for stating the facts, how dare I?

    What is wrong with you posters? It took a full month for the Trayvon Martin case to hit the “left wing national media” fer Crissakes. And you know what? It would have blown over if the chief of Sandford police DIDN’T LET ZIMMERMAN GO WITHOUT A CHARGE OF MANSLAUGHTER.

    But, yeah, here’s a videotape of a beatdown that happened we don’t when, and the assailant WAS CHARGED WITH SIMPLE ASSAULT.

    Yeah. I’m Liberal. And there is no way in freakin’ hell I would want to live in a neighborhood with you whiny-assed idiots. So if you want to hijack this site with your simpletonian perspective of social relations in the U.S. of A then you better get ready to be called ignorant boobs.

      let me guess, anyone who would disagree with you is a racist

    • skids003 - Mar 30, 2012 at 12:16 PM

      Wow, Koufax, call down. Just because someone disagrees with your views is no reason to call them names. Remember, everyone has freedom of speech, not just people who think like you do.

      Unfortuanately, in the situation you bring up, there seems to be a great number of people who do not want to let the justice system handle this. Hopefully, the truth will come out over the next few days. Whichever way it goes, there will be groups of people with alot of eg on their faces.

      First of all Kofaxmitzvah, Trayvon Martin was not a sporting event, this was. Second of all it was not videotaped and this was. Law enforcement officials evidently know something in the Trayvon Martin case that made ir difficult if not impossible for them to charge him with manslaughter, and any time that Al Sharpton gets involved in anything it is usually racially motivated, do you remember hime defending that Tawana Brawley case – a case that would haunt him for years. Brawley, an African American teenager, claimed that she was raped by a group of white men – some of whom were allegedly police officers. The case was later dismissed by a grand jury, which reportedly concluded that the teenager had made up the story. But this came after months of media frenzy around the case, largely encouraged by Sharpton. He was even sued by the district attorney working the case for making slanderous remarks. Sharpton was found guilty and fined for his comments.
      So as a liberal you should just keep your mouth shut until all the facts are in because we are all sick of your liberal whinning.

      Nice rant. Don’t turn an article about a soccer fight into some ******** about the Martin case. I’m sick and tired of hearing about it.

    Dear mouthbreathers crying about the media:

    You realize this video is posted to a media website? A national media website? NBC. Y’know, it’s a pretty large, significant entity in the media. The cognitive dissonance that is so freely paraded about anymore is frightening.

    • skids003 - Mar 30, 2012 at 12:13 PM

      Actually, this was on Yahoo yesterday way before here. I think someone got scooped.

      • themaskedarbiter - Mar 30, 2012 at 12:15 PM

        Good call, and furthering my point.
