Was Buchanan wrestler's move an illegal act? Athlete faces trial on a charge of sexual battery
Fresno Bee ^ | December 6, 2010 | Pablo Lopez and Nick Giannandrea

In a crowded gym during practice in front of parents and coaches, the Buchanan High School wrestler tackled a teammate and executed a move his coaches taught him.

He inserted his fingers between the boy's buttocks.

It's called the "butt drag," in which a wrestler grabs a rival's butt cheek and puts fingers in the anus to get leverage. The move is widely used at matches around the country and has been around for decades.

Ah, yes. The Barney Frank maneuver. Deadlier than Corbomite.

Putting your fingers into another person’s butthole during a wrestling match CANNOT be a legitimate move. I can’t imagine this is coached anywhere. It should get the person thrown out of the match, out of wrestling, and likely into jail, if used.

Disgusting. And the article talks of it as if it is a normal move.

It’s only a normal move for gays.

The move sounds disturbing to me, not a sex crime though.

It reminds me of a martial arts move a friend told me about years ago called "crush the gold". Another move only executable versus a male opponent.

I never wrestled but I had friends who did & I never heard of this.

I kind of wonder if saying it's some kind of long-established move is something cooked up by the lawyers for the accused.

This is total BS. I've been involved with wrestling a long time, there is no such move, you're in a singlet for goodness sakes.

Do they think you wrestle naked?

I guarantee that if your opponent rams a couple of fingers up your crack, you will CERTAINLY remember it!

And, upon executing that maneuver, you should exit out of the match, turn right around, and pound the living dogs**t out of the guy who did it to you.

Sure, you’ll be disqualified, but I don’t think they’ll EVER try that again.

I had a high school friend and neighbor who was on our school wrestling team. He made the team, and I did not, but he had me take the role of his opponent sometimes when he wanted to practice at home. We never heard of or were taught that move, in the 1960s.

Never happened to me as my years wrestling. Seems like it should be considered a dangerous move with a high possiblilty of injury. Especially if someone tried it on me! I’d come back across with an elbow and smash there nose inside their head.

Me neither. The rules were (and I’m confident, are) strict about any moves which could cause injury. Half or full nelsons, head locks round the throat, etc. were not permitted and could result in a quick disqualification and forfeit. They even checked to make sure fingernails were trimmed to the nubs to prevent scratches. Using the old poop chute like the hole on a bowling ball? If that’s within the rules then a lot has changed, and not for the better.

“I’ve been involved with wrestling a long time, there is no such move, you’re in a singlet for goodness sakes.”

What does no one read the articles here:

FTA:

“The move does not involve skin-on-skin contact; the wrestler practicing the move is pushing his fingers against his opponent’s uniform.”

“Clovis police, however, say 17-year-old Preston went too far. A police report says that at a July 15 practice, he molested a Buchanan freshman teammate by inserting his fingers deep into the boy’s anus, causing him pain.”

Yep...I wrestled from 3rd grade through 12th and don't recall anything of the sort.

Now, putting Atomic Balm in somebody's jock strap is a different story...

The butt drag goes back to the original Olympics.

It’s still used in Turkish wrestling which is the most similar to ancient forms of what we call Greco-Roman wrestling.

It's total BS, I wrestled and my my sons now wrestle competitively, I've never seen or heard of this move.

I will say, if it did exist as a move, and someone had tried it on me they wouldn't have had an arm left at the end of the match.

I know this has been in the papers, but even in MMA that would be illegal. I don't believe this is ever allowed in High School Wrestling. This is a hoax or a Moron coaching.

Mixed martial arts rules

"..Fouls

The following are fouls, as set out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission:[4]

Putting a finger into any orifice or into any cut or laceration on an opponent. (see Gouging).."

High school and college for me and I have never heard of it, but my last match was in 1972. I am sure new moves have evolved.

I found a pretty good clip on the move on Youtube. The poster was trying to be funny with the soundtrack, but it does show the “Butt drag” being used in a number of high school wrestling matches.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWnVO33AK1w

BTW, my older brother was a top notch wrestler, and I don’t remember him ever using anything like that!

My step son Westeled and so did my nephews, none of them ever used this move and I am sure they would have balked at using it. The crap about it being widely used is so much BS.

The only move that would even be in the same area is pulling the opponents arm between their legs from behind and driving that up the backside. Still a far cry from fingers in the @ss. Nope! Someone pulling that on me would have changed it from a wrestling match to a fight.

You can’t put your fingers in your opponents mouth, eyes or anus. The last one constitutes anal rape, the first two get you disqualified.
