White HS ref forces black NJ wrestler to cut his dreads off or forfeit match

South Jersey high school wrestling referee Alan Maloney (who has previously been accused of using a racial slur) gave black Buena Regional High School wrestler Andrew Johnson two choices: Cut off his dreadlocks on the spot or lose an important match.

“Regulations regarding hair length and legal hair covers for wrestlers are provided by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS)," Executive Director Larry White said Friday. "At this point, the NJSIAA is working to determine the exact nature of the incident and whether an infraction occurred."

"As a precautionary measure, given the degree of attention being focused on this matter, the NJSIAA will recommend to chapter officials that the referee in question not be assigned to any event until this matter has been reviewed more thoroughly in order to avoid potential distractions for the competing wrestlers.”

Interesting. So Larry White couldn't just spit the rule out?

Maloney has been accused of using the N-Word in public in the past to boot.
