Fisherman Busted For Cheating In Ohio Walleye Tournament Now Charged With Stalking & Counterfeit Money

Chase Cominsky

And if you needed any further proof that this guy is an absolute scumbag…

Last October, fishermen Chase Cominsky and Jacob Runyan were caught stuffing their “prized” walleye with lead weights in a walleye fishing tournament on Lake Erie in Ohio.

Video footage went viral of the tournament host pulling out the weights from the fish, and every other fisherman in the tournament cussing them out, wanting to fight them.

Since that news broke, it has been alleged that Cominsky and Runyan have actually cheated a number of times in past tournaments, and even had to return a $150,000 boat they won back in 2021 after one of them failed a lie detector test.

And even though it was proven that the two cheated, they still somehow had the nerve to plead not guilty in court.

With that being said, one of the two fishermen is continuing to prove just how much of a scumbag he is, and it’s Chase Cominsky.

Aside from the felony charges of cheating, attempted grand theft, and possessing criminal tools, along with misdemeanor charges of unlawfully owning wild animals, these new charges actually have nothing to do with fishing…

Cominsky is now facing charges for stalking his ex-wife, and also supplying his 18-year-old son with counterfeit money, according to WFMJ.

Wow, a great family man too.

The counterfeit money charge comes from a night when his 18-year-old son tried to go bowling in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, and exchanged two fake $100 bills for a bunch of games.

In court, a heated text exchange between Cominsky and his son was shown about the counterfeit money, and the police said it was obviously fake, because the money had stuff stamped on them like “For Motion Picture Purposes,” and “not legal tender.”

The charge for stalking his wife came shortly after he was caught cheating in the tournament, on October 31, 2022.

He was accused of stalking and harassing his ex-wife while she was driving her kid home from school in Pennsylvania’s Jefferson Township.

A criminal complaint stated that Cominsky hacked into her snapchat, and sent a number of threatening text messages before he began to tailgate her incredibly closely, enough for her to fear wrecking her car.

Bond for the counterfeit bills is set at $12,000, and his hearing for the stalking case will occur in May in Jefferson Township.

Cominsky and Runyan will stand trial together for their roles in the fishing tournament cheating scandal on March 27th in Cuyahoga County Court.
