Ohio Walleye Tournament Cheater Chase Cominsky To Serve 12 Months In Jail For Counterfeit Money

Last October, competitive fishermen Chase Cominsky and Jacob Runyan became public enemies number one in the fishing world, when they were caught stuffing their “prized” walleye with lead weights at a fishing tournament on Lake Erie in Ohio.

Video footage showed the tournament host removing the lead weights from the fish, as the crowd began cussing and threatening to fight them.

They were escorted out by police, and initially pleaded not guilty for cheating, attempted grand theft, and possessing criminal tools.

Of course, the evidence spoke for itself and they ultimately reversed their plea to guilty, and were ultimately sentenced to 10 days in jail and were released on probation for a year and a half back in May.

With that being said, one of the two fishermen just hasn’t been able to stay out of trouble since, and it’s no other than Chase Cominsky.

Earlier this year, the man was charged for stalking his wife, while also giving his 18-year-old son counterfeit money. And more recently, Cominsky was charged with eight counts of wildlife crimes, after being accused of killing a number of whitetail bucks while hunting without a license, after legal hours, and out of season.

A criminal complaint was filed against him by the Pennsylvania Game Commission Northwest on November 25th, 2022, stating that he had illegally harvested several deer from 2013 to 2021.

And now, Cominsky is facing repercussions for his actions, as he was sentenced up to 12 months in jail along with four months probation for attempting to give his son the counterfeit $100 bills at a bowling alley in Hermitage, Pennsylvania. His 18-year-old son was involved, and also charged as well.

According to wired2fish, the counterfeit bills weren’t even close to being legit, and looked more like something you’d see off a movie set.

Needless to say, this guy keeps digging his hole deeper and deeper…
