Former Pro Wrestling Star Arrested And Charged With Sexual Abuse

CBS Minnesota reports that former AWA wrestler Eugene "Buck" Zumhofe was arrested on Monday for allegedly sexually abusing a family member.

The 29-year old victim claims that Zumhofe, now 62-years old, sexually abused her while she was living in his home from 1999, when she was 15 years old, until 2011. She said that there were 1,800 separate acts of sexual abuse during that period, and she reported the abuse last year while seeking therapy and medical attention. She claims that Zumhofe threatened her and her spouse when they left his house in 2011, and that he also threatened to commit suicide.

The report stated that "Zumhofe faces 12 felony counts of criminal sexual conduct, including seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct of a minor under 16 years of age and six felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct of a person at least 16 but under 18 years of age." He is currently being held at the Kandiyohi County Jail and is due in court again on June 10th.
