H.S. Basketball Player Arrested Over Post-Game Sucker Punches, Charged W/ Felony

The high school basketball player who sucker-punched his opponent in a post-game handshake line was arrested on Wednesday and charged with a felony.

Carter Prenosil was accused of knocking out his opponent after the basketball game in Iowa.

Police say Prenosil threw an unwarranted punch at a Nevada player in the stomach and face.

The alleged victim appeared to be knocked out on his feet in the violent altercation that you can see in the video.

The player had a concussion and a cut to his mouth that required four stitches.

Cops who were at the arena launched an investigation and eventually arrested Prenosil. He was charged with felony willful injury.

Prenosil could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. He is due in court on December 13 for a hearing.

We reached out to Prenosil's father, but he hasn't responded yet.

In a statement Wednesday, Amos said that the incident was not representative of the school culture in the district.

This type of conduct is not accepted at the CSD. The district will follow the student code of conduct policy and procedures throughout the investigation.
