BELLE VERNON — A small-time pro wrestler is apologizing for allegedly putting a woman in a submission hold then fighting with police who used a stun gun to subdue him after he had been drinking at a New Year’s party.

Twenty-three-year-old Isaac Lancaster Jr., of Fallowfield Township, apologized after he was arraigned Thursday on charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and other crimes.

Lancaster says, “I usually don’t get like that. I do have a high respect for police officers. I wasn’t right for doing what I did when I was drunk, but I don’t remember most of it.”

Southwest Regional Police Chief John Hartman says Lancaster adopted a wrestling stance and charged his officers and others.

The 6-foot, 270-pound defendant says he quit wrestling under the “Kid Lightning” moniker more than a year ago.
