'Butt Drag' Buchanan High School wrestler offered a deal

FRESNO, Calif.

The case centers on a controversial wrestling move. Video posted on YouTube shows a version of the move, called a butt drag. One wrestler grabs his opponent between the buttocks to turn him.

But Fresno County prosecutors say the 17-year-old Buchanan senior charged in this case took the move into the realm of sexual battery.

Action News has learned prosecutors offered a deal to the 17-year-old during arraignment. The deal is that the case would be dismissed if the teen stays out of trouble for six months.

The teen is rejecting the offer because he feels he didn't do anything wrong. Both parties are working to reach an agreement ahead of tomorrow's scheduled hearing.
