UPDATE: Wisconsin Rapids wrestler pleads no contest

(Update: In the original version of the story, Newsline 9 inaccurately described the charge involved in the plea deal. We apologize for the mistake.)

Wisconsin Rapids wrestler Rylan Lubeck has pleaded no contest to obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor charge.

The judge ordered 100 hours of community service and payment of court costs.  Lubeck must also write a three page letter about this case's impact on the community, his family and the wrestling team.


According to the Wood County Clerk of Courts, a plea hearing has been scheduled for the Wisconsin Rapids wrestler facing a felony stalking charge.

Police say Rylan Lubeck danced around the locker room naked and tried to touch another wrestler inappropriately. Lubeck's defense attorney argues Lubeck's behavior was all part of locker room horseplay.

Three other wrestlers were also charged with Lubeck. But, they took a plea deal in March.

Newsline 9 tried to contact Lubeck's attorney and the Wood County district attorney but they were not available for comment.

Lubeck's plea hearing is scheduled for Friday at 3 p.m. Newsline 9 does have a crew at the court appearance. We will continue to update this story as more details become available.
