Smash Bros player banned from tournaments after being arrested over mother’s murder
A competitive Smash Bros player named Collin “Sweets’ Boldizar has been banned from tournaments after he was arrested in connection to his mother’s murder.
It has been reported that Boldizar, who he had a no-contact order with his mother, has been taken in by police as part of their investigation. Deputies on the scene found a decapitated body in the home where his mother lived on June 30.
She was found dead after a concerned neighbor called the police. They had heard screams and loud thumping noises coming from her house at 2 am.
Satellite Smash — a Washington-based Smash Bros tournament organizer — has since taken action against Sweets.
