Former AWA pro wrestler Eugene "Buck" Zumhofe entered a not guilty plea in a Willmar, Minnesota court to 12 felony counts of criminal sexual conduct. He is accused of having sexual relations with an underage family member approximately 1,800 times between 1999 and 2011. The judge in the case lowered Zumhofe's bail to $50,000 from the previously set $100,000. Two additional hearings are set for September 9 and September 18. Read the full story at

Powell's POV: The defense noted that Zumhofe's family was having trouble raising the $10,000 bond required for $100,000 bail, so the judge lowered it.

Only in... Okay, it's the wrong day for that line to be said sarcastically, but this is ridiculous.
