An Ohio high school basketball star collapsed in court while being read his long prison sentence. You can hear 18-year-old Tony Farmer question his lawyer in disbelief as the judge read the verdict, which sounded like he would spend several years in prison. Then, his knees buckled and he collapsed.
The basketball star is accused of kidnapping, assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend. Farmer assaulted his ex-girlfriend earlier this year, dragging her by her hair outside of an apartment building, and removing her computer, phone, debit card and car keys. After kidnapping, assault and robbery charges, not to mention other charges for intimidation for threatening text messages Farmer sent.
Farmer was ranked among the top 100 high school players in the country and was being recruited by several major colleges.
Damn, the judge reading Tony Farmer his sentence knocked a brotha off his feet.
