referee alan maloney, who is white, told him his dreadlocks and hair violated state wrestling rules. he was given the choice of forfeiting or getting a quick haircut on the spot. he chose the later -- and won the match. the family attorney says they are now waiting on the results of a new jersey division of civil rights investigation of the incident. the attorney said the referee was late for the weigh-in -- and should have raised any issues sooner, not right before the match. the attorney called the referee's actions that day "outrageous" and said his conduct -- quote -- "should be a disqualifying race-related transgression."
