A Minnesota high school wrestler has been charged with two misdemeanors after allegedly hitting another wrestler in the head with a chair during a tournament, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported Saturday.

Harold Delancy, 19, allegedly began throwing and kicking chairs set up next to the wrestling mat after losing a match at the Clash wrestling tournament, held on Jan. 7 at the University Center Rochester Regional Sports Center in Rochester, Minn., which is about 80 miles (128 kilometers) south of St. Paul.

The victim, a 16-year-old wrestler from Oregon, was sitting next to the mat and was allegedly hit in the head with the legs of a chair that Delancy was holding. The 16-year-old suffered a concussion.

Delancy was removed from the event and charged with two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct. He was still listed on his school wrestling team's roster as of Friday night.
