CLEVELAND, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The two men accused of cheating while participating in the Lake Erie Walleye Tournament last month have been indicted on attempted grand theft and other charges.
42-year-old Jacob Runyan and 35-year-old Chase Cominsky will be arraigned later.
The pair was caught with lead weights inside the fish they caught.
They would have won $28,000 had they won fair-and-square.
An additional misdemeanor charge could lead to suspension of the duo’s fishing licenses.
One of the men had a boat and trailer confiscated earlier this week.
