Police Arrest Man, 53, Who "Tebowed" After Assaulting Pennsylvania Teen
Police today announced the arrest of a Pennsylvania man who allegedly “Tebowed” after assaulting a teenage boy last month.
David Edward McCosby, 53, was collared for misdemeanor simple assault by the Shenango Township Police Department in connection with the August 27 attack on the 17-year-old victim.
Investigators report that McCosby has confessed to assaulting the boy.
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'.”
A preliminary hearing for McCosby, pictured in the above mug shot, has not yet been scheduled.
