Ex-wrestler Chief Justice Roberts hospitalized in June after fall

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Wednesday that Chief Justice John Roberts -- who wrestled while in a private high school in Indiana decades ago -- was hospitalized for a head injury earlier this summer after suffering a fall about three weeks earlier while exercise-walking on a golf course in Maryland on Sunday, June 21, 2020.

Roberts was kept overnight for one evening, having been treated with sutures for minor cuts, then released from the hospital the next day.

Roberts' doctors ruled out a seizure. They believe the fall was likely due to lightheadedness caused by dehydration.

John Glover Roberts Jr. was born January 27, 1955 in northwest Indiana. He attended Notre Dame Elementary School, then La Lumiere School, a small but affluent and academically rigorous Roman Catholic boarding school in La Porte, Indiana. While at La Lumiere, he was captain of the football team and was a regional champion on the varsity wrestling team. Roberts graduated first in his class in 1973.

This one is really stretching it, Mark. You don't have to write about everything that ever happens to every former wrestler

Yes you do. I want to know about every high-level person with a wrestling background. We need all the support we can get.

I appreciate the story, but I have always said what jh65kg said about famous people who were former "wrestlers." Some of it is stretching it, particularly Abe Lincoln. Lincoln's "wrestling career" amounted to nothing more than a drunken deal one evening behind a shed.
