Andrew Johnson was about to compete for Buena Regional High School in New Jersey -- and was wearing a cover over his dreadlocks when refereeAlan Maloney stepped in. Maloney told Johnson his hair cover was not sufficient and gave him 2 choices : chop off the locks or lose the match. Johnson reluctantly chose the haircut, but you can see he's visibly upset.
Johnson competed and won easily. Maloney is being ordered to sensitivity training after the incident
