PWInsider.com reports that a new charge has been filed against former AWA star Buck "Rock n' Roll" Zumhofe, who, on Wednesday, was found guilty by a Minnesota jury of a total of 12 counts of criminal sexual conduct against a young female relative (six first-degree, six third-degree).
The new charge, "escape from custody," is in response to his attempt to flee the court after the guilty verdict was passed down.
In an update, it was previously reported that Zumhofe attempted to flee the courtroom itself; however, it is now being reported that following the passing down of the verdict, Zumhofe went to use the restroom and used the opportunity to attempt to flee the building itself before being tackled and restrained by officers.
Also as previously reported, Zumhofe is now expected to be sentenced sometime later this month instead of today as originally planned due to the judge reportedly needing extra time to consider adding an additional penalty because of the violent nature of the offense; however, other conflicting reports are still stating that Zumhofe is scheduled to be sentenced today.
