From Cheating Angler to Cleared Hunter: Cominsky’s Legal Journey
By angelamontana

Looks like Chase Cominsky’s had quite the rollercoaster ride with the law.  First, he was caught up in that fishing tournament scandal, then he dodged some serious deer poaching charges, according to

Mercer County Court records stated that they had him on the hook for a bunch of charges, like nabbing big game out of season and not playing by the tagging rules. But they decided to let him off the hook – “Nolle Prossed,” they call it. Translation? No prosecution. Must’ve been a sigh of relief for him, as the documents stated that his hunting license was suspended from 2008 through 2021.

The decision to drop the charges came down on January 11.

But hold on, it doesn’t end there. It turns out, this isn’t the first time Cominsky’s been in hot water. Remember that fishing tournament fiasco from a year ago? Yeah, that’s him! He and his buddy got busted trying to cheat their way to some prizes with lead weights in their catch. Not a good look.

They ended up with a ten-day stint in jail, slapped with fines, and had their fishing licenses taken away.

And even more recently, Cominsky was sentenced in a local forgery case not related to either fishing or hunting case, according to

Looks like Chase Cominsky has a knack for making headlines – just not for the right reasons.
