High-School Basketball Player Arrested After Sucker-Punching His Opponent In The Face

A high school basketball player who was caught on video sucker-punching his opponent after losing a game has been arrested and charged with a felony.

Footage of the incident posted on TikTok shows 17-year-old Carter Prenosil of the Carlisle Wildcats attacking a member of his Nevada High School opponents during the post-game handshakes.

In the nine-second video, Prenosil can be seen hitting his opponent twice; once in the stomach and once in the face. Following the incident, players from both teams can be seen attempting to separate the two.

Police present at the scene immediately launched an investigation into the incident before arresting Prenosil on Wednesday.

According to court documents, Prenosil has been charged with Willful Injury - Causing Serious Injury, which is a Class C felony. According to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday, the victim "received a serious enough concussion to render him unconscious" and he sustained a cut on his mouth that required four stitches.

Prenosil has been released on bail and is due to appear in court for a hearing on the matter on Dec 13. If found guilty he could face up to 10 years in prison on the charge.

According to the Des Moines Register, Nevada won its season opener 72-47. Nevada has started its season with a 1-0 record, and Carlisle is 0-2.

"It's a very unfortunate situation," Nevada superintendent Dr. Steve Gray said in a statement to TMZ. "I'm happy they deescalated it. I thought our coaches and staff handled it well and got everyone out of there without it worsening."

Meanwhile over at Prenosil's school, Carlisle Community School District superintendent Bryce Amos said in a statement on Wednesday that, "This is without question an unfortunate incident that is not representative of the school culture that exists in Carlisle Community School District."

"I want to make it clear that this type of conduct is not tolerated at Carlisle CSD. The district will follow the student code of conduct policy and procedures throughout the investigation of this incident and implement appropriate consequences."
