A 49-year-old Colorado Springs man has been arrested for attempting to lure a child on the Internet to have sex.

Mark Anthony Scott was arrested today at the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office and booked into the Jefferson County Jail, according to the DA's office.

Scott, a director with USA Wrestling in Colorado Springs, is being held on suspicion of attempted sexual exploitation of a child, attempted Internet sexual exploitation of a child and Internet luring of a child.

He began communicating with an undercover officer in a chat room on June 6 believing he was exchanging information and messages with an "under-aged teen," prosecutors said in a media release.

Scott is scheduled to appear in a Jefferson County court room Tuesday morning.

This guy wasn't just involved in wrestling btw. He was also very active in submission wrestling as well. He was an official for USA Grappling and flew over with the USA Grappling Team when they went to the world championships in Turkey a year or two ago.


 He was gonna do anything. He was just gonna do "this."

Yes, the "this" earned someone a vote up lol, or it would have if I hadn't let my blue status slip!

If he wanted to molest children, why didn't he just go to wrestling practice?
