UPDATE: Man That Clotheslined Teen Off a Lawnmower, Tebowed, and Drove Away, Has Killed Himself
According to The Smoking Gun:
The assault came after the teenager–who was cutting grass in front of his family’s home–drove a riding mower “on the road, apparently into the path of” McCosby’s oncoming vehicle, cops reported. After exiting his car, McCosby approached the boy and “knocked the juvenile off the lawn mower and assaulted him in the front yard of the residence,” investigators alleged.
In announcing McCosby’s arrest, cops noted that, “After the assault, and prior to fleeing the scene, McCosby got onto his knee in what appeared to be a prayer. Witnesses described it as a 'Tebow'.”
UPDATE: In a tragic and unlikely turn of events, the man that clotheslined the teen and subsequently Tebowed has apparently killed himself.
According to the New Castle News:
